Online Consumer Lending

Valley First’s parent First West Credit Union has signed on to explore online consumer lending.

This new venture between Canada’s fastest growing fintech company Grow and FWCU is among the first of its kind. The two organizations are working side-by-side to explore the opportunity to expand online consumer lending. Grow brings its cutting-edge lending technology while First West provides insight from the in-person consumer-facing experience and the strength of a trusted and respected financial institution.

Grow’s online lending technology allows users to apply for a loan online 24 hours a day and to receive an instant quote without impacting their credit score. If approved, loans can be funded in as little as a few hours. By working with First West, Grow aims to be the first to provide people living in British Columbia access to on-demand and fully digitized online lending through a Canadian credit union or bank.
