Abstract

This paper explores the role of credit unions in provision of financial services. Drawing upon recent research in Wales, the authors explore different routes to diversification developed by Welsh credit unions to help financially excluded individuals and avoid the use of sub-prime lenders. This analysis of credit union development highlights the lessons to be learnt from each strand of diversification before considering the implications of these findings on the wider, UK, credit movement.
