Last but not least, this is our final winner for this years Ah Ha Moment contest, Brianne K.!
Here is her story in her own words:
"The picture I included is the picture I shared with everyone the day I got my new truck. I was overwhelmed with joy that day as it had been a long 3 months since my other vehicle died. I almost gave up hope before a co-worker referred me to AERO. My Ah-Ha moment was the day I drove my truck home because I couldn’t have done it without the car loan from AERO. For my generation, loans are usually a scary ordeal that leave us feeling imprisoned. However, my car loan from AERO empowered me. The loan is easily manageable and my new vehicle gave me my freedom back.
Having transportation is crucial for me to accomplish my goals. I am a graduate student in biology and this truck allows me to haul field equipment and camping equipment around to do research. I also work two jobs so it allows me to get everywhere I need to be on my own terms. Chasing my dreams across the country from all my loved ones is incredibly difficult, but having a reliable vehicle and a bank that supports me makes it a little bit easier. It’s comforting that whenever I walk into an AERO branch it feels like I am being greeted by friends. The staff at the 59th Ave branch in Phoenix were so welcoming and supportive when I first approached them looking for a car loan. They’ve never stopped being that way. For someone living in a city full of strangers it’s nice to see friendly, comforting faces every time I stop in at AERO. " ... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations to Francisco V., another winner from this years My Ah Ha Moment contest!
Here is his story in his own words:
"AERO Federal Credit Union helped me save to buy a ring and take a trip where I proposed to my girlfriend. I saved money by refinancing my car loan with them and saving enough via AERO’s savings account for this big moment. I never would have been able to save enough for this moment if it wasn’t for AERO’s incredible interest rates. They beat the rates the big banks out there were offering me. Thanks Aero." ...

We would like to congratulate Pete. A., one of our winners from this years My Ah Ha Moment contest!
Here is Pete's story in his own words:
"Who would've dreamed that when I went to work for Sperry Corporation in 1982 I would still be a member of what is now, AERO Credit Union, be living in Santa Fe but still seeing Nancy's smiling face when visiting Albuquerque but most important that at 77 I would have such a lovely family. Fourteen years ago, Theresa and I adopted these lovely children and I found myself, Ah-HA, changing diapers at 65. Alisha just graduated from St Michaels High School and is now attending New Mexico State University. Carlos still has 3 years but being a cancer surviving family, I am optimistic that I, along with my Theresa, will see them both graduate from college. AERO has financed more than one of my vehicles and helped us make so many trips throughout the world and we plan on more. Thank you." ... See MoreSee Less
