Watch your savings grow…
You too can share our vision and join YourB for interest free savings and loans. From 2022, YourB expanded our range of savings and loans for all purposes, not just education.
Be Part of our story
The idea for YourB started in January 2015 by Dr Muna Abdel Aziz, the founder of YourB. She wanted to create a future where students could take interest free loans.
So that students would avoid the possible huge burden of debt that they would carry for many years to come, caused by compound interest on the student loans available at that time.
She shared her vision with her friends and family, and in 2019 YourB submitted an application to the Finance Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulatory Authority. Her vision became a reality on 21st January 2020, when YourB Credit Union Ltd became the first Shariah compliant Credit Union in the UK.
You too can share Dr Muna’s vision and join YourB for interest free savings and loans.
How to join YourB
Your journey starts by being part of a Common Bond. Every Credit Union has a Common Bond, which is basically a means by which each member has something in common with one another. Because of the way Credit Unions are run; democratically, owned by their members, it is important to make sure member fall within that common bond.
Organisations can become Common Bond members, which then gives their attendees or members the opportunity to join YourB and start their interest free savings and interest free loans journey.
To become a member of YourB, you must be an existing member of an organisation which is a common bond of YourB. Both Adults and Juveniles (under 16 years old) can join YourB. All members pay a £10 joining fee and a £10 annual membership fee (Juvenile accounts incur no fees).
YourB is run by the members, for the members entirely by volunteers. We welcome volunteers to YourB who are encouraged to donate their time or skills
Or you can become a Friend of YourB to join our fundraising team who raise funds to cover the running costs and help spread the word about YourB . Every donation whether large or small, regular or adhoc, is used to support our members.
YourB welcomes guarantors who can sponsor some of our student members who require a loan, so they can fulfil their career ambitions.
