Afe­na Fed­er­al Cred­it Union has a long-stand­ing his­to­ry in the City of Mar­i­on, begin­ning with their estab­lish­ment in 1957 under the name, Mar­i­on Inde­pen­dent FCU. Fast-for­ward to today, Afe­na touts over $60 mil­lion in assets, has 29 employ­ees, 7,000+ mem­bers, and two branch­es in Mar­i­on with a new branch in Upland slat­ed to open in the sum­mer of 2020.

As a small local finan­cial insti­tu­tion, Afe­na has grown tremen­dous­ly over the years by keep­ing a focus on their core val­ues which includes stay­ing mis­sion-focused, being com­mit­ted to mem­ber ser­vice, stay­ing involved in the com­mu­ni­ties they serve, main­tain­ing finan­cial sta­bil­i­ty, stay­ing com­pet­i­tive with their prod­ucts and ser­vice, demon­strat­ing stel­lar lead­er­ship, and being ded­i­cat­ed to their employees.

Like many of our mem­bers, Afe­na was born and raised right here in Mar­i­on, and we’ve cre­at­ed a unique way of bank­ing to fit the lifestyles and goals of those liv­ing and work­ing in our com­mu­ni­ty. At Afe­na, we don’t just see an account bal­ance or a cred­it score, we con­sid­er our mem­bers’ whole sto­ry. Then, we sit down with them and work as a part­ner to help them reach their finan­cial dreams,” — Shel­by Schuh, VP of Marketing

A rib­bon-cut­ting for their new loca­tion in Upland is ten­ta­tive­ly sched­uled for July 31st, 2020.
