 About Us 

La Joya Area Federal Credit Union
exists to provide complete financial services to its members.

Our History

The credit union was first formed by 15 La Joya ISD teachers who applied to the National Credit Union Administration for a charter - each paying a $20.00 fee. Approval for the charter was granted on December 5, 1961.

Daniel Zamora was elected treasurer, and he took over operations. He recruited members, disbursed loans from his briefcase, and took deposits during his lunch breaks and after school. Mr. Zamora was paid a salary of $3.00 a month for his services.

Johnn Alaniz is the credit union's President/CEO.
