Eatonville opens the city’s first financial institution

A big event for Eatonville: the first financial institution in this town’s long history and they hope everyone brings their money here. This is something that has never happened in Eatonville: a financial institution has opened in the city that freedom has built. It’s called Eatonville FCU Unit. It’s right on Kennedy Boulevard, in the heart of a town that never had a bank or credit union. Rev. Willie C. Barnes, pastor of the Macedonian Missionary Baptist Church, says they started working on this four years ago. The goal is to give people who live and work in Eatonville access to low interest loans and the opportunity to invest in an institution dedicated to the development of this community. The credit union is federally insured and began maintaining accounts in June. In the next few months, they hope to reach 250 customers.
