DURHAM, N.C. — Latino Community Credit Union, the $55 million credit union that has made a name for itself serving a primarily Hispanic and immigrant membership since 2000, has taken another step into the credit union mainstream by adding online banking to its Web site (www.cooperativalatina.org).

"With this service, available in English and Spanish, members will be able to manage their accounts and carry out many kinds of transactions from home," said ?ngel Romero, marketing director for the CU. "Members will no longer need to go to the branches, use the phone, or go to an ATM. They will be able to do it all comfortably from their computers, from any place that has an Internet connection."

Latino has also built in additional abilities to the site, Romero reported. "For example, members will be able to open share term certificates to enjoy LCCU's very competitive dividend rates," he said. "Another feature of Latino DirectNet is that it allows users to transfer money between accounts. Users can pay credit cards and loans as well. Additionally, members will be able to pay utility bills and other services with BillPay. Through the BillPay system credit union members will be able to schedule one-time or recurrent payments.
