CUFR will provide high quality business and commercial lending products to business owners, investors and associations, volunteer and municipal fire departments nationwide.

A partnership between NCOFCU and Biz Lending & Insurance Center, Inc., this exclusive service for NCOFCU member credit unions will originate direct commercial real estate, business loans and generate non-interest income.

CUFR provides the member business lending expertise!

CUFR has three tailored solutions – Referral Credit Union, Participation Credit Union and Lead Lender programs. Participation is based on a credit union’s available capital, capabilities and needs.

When lead lenders fund a loan, they can opt to portfolio the entire loan or sell participations. CUFR creates a funnel of opportunities for our credit union members and the First Responder communities find a lending partner they trust!
