We Match Borrowers with a Network of Community Lenders.

What We Do

We're transforming a $3.2 trillion consumer lending market by enabling the nation’s
13,000+ community financial institutions to enter and succeed in online lending. Our innovative
technology matches consumers with community banks and credit unions to create
the most transparent, accessible and low-cost borrowing options in online lending.




Lenders benefit from a superior infrastructure that provides full-scale marketing, operations and technological support.

Borrowers can achieve their financial goals and save money with lower interest rates from financial institutions that prioritize people over profits.


Why We Do It

Applying for a loan often means something really cool is about to happen: you're buying a new car, going to
college, or moving into a new home. But, are you excited by the idea of applying for a loan? We didn't think so. It's hard
to find information on loans products, the application process is cumbersome and time consuming, and you
never know if you've found the right loan for you. Well, we're fixing all of that!

Credit unions and community banks have some of the best products and borrower-friendly loans
available today, and we're enabling them to bring these products to you online. By letting you borrow directly
from America's local and not-for-profit lenders, we're building something that's been sorely missing in
online lending - transparency and low interest lending.  We're bringing Main St. capital back to Main St.
and giving consumers the tools they need to make smart borrowing decisions.




We are honored to have been chosen by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), the largest
premier national trade association for credit unions, as their exclusive partner providing private student loans.
CUNA receives hundreds of applications annually from providers wanting to become a CUNA Strategic Services Partner but their extensive due diligence process only results in two to three new partners each year.

In addition to the CUNA partnership, credit union leagues representing 29 states and the District of Columbia have chosen to support us. They are:  Arizona, Arkansas, California/Nevada, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts/New Hampshire/Rhode Island, Maryland (and D.C.), Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota/South Dakota, New Jersey, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, and West Virginia.

"The broad support from the state leagues validates our selection of LendKey as the sole provider of private
student loans through CUNA Strategic Services. This additional collaboration at the state level reinforces our
message nationwide that the cuStudentLoans program offers unique benefits to meet the needs of students."
