MPCC Credit Union will consider loan applications from members for any worthwhile purpose. In deciding whether or not to grant the loan, the credit committee will take into account the member’s record of savings and loan repayments, ability to repay and the purpose of the loan (normally, there is a requirement for new members or first time borrowers to save regularly for at least three months prior to making a loan application).

If you would like to apply for a loan with MPCC Credit Union, you will need to call to our Dooradoyle office in person and bring the following documents with you. This is standard practice and we appreciate your co-operation in this matter. Covered Loans over €3,000 only require photo ID and proof of income e.g. payslip.

MPCC Credit Union is a member of the Irish Credit Bureau and a credit check will be carried out on all loan applicants.

Each application is treated in the utmost confidence and will be considered on its own merits.

What happens when my loan is approved?

Once the loan is granted, you will be asked to return to the office to complete a credit agreement, which is a legally binding document being a promise to repay the loan, and to commit to regular repayments.  You will then receive your loan, in the form of a cheque or cash.
