Dancers from Ballet Folklorico Xochitl
Mariachi music, folklorico dancers, good food and community--last week's ribbon-cutting celebration at our Second Federal branch in Chicago's Little Village neighborhood was full of life.
Second Federal, a Division of Self-Help Federal Credit Union comprises three branches in Chicago, including the Little Village branch. Second Federal began life in 1882 as a savings and loan association. When financial hard times forced the thrift to close in 2012, Self-Help Federal Credit Union (SHFCU) joined with partners to save it, bringing Second Federal into the Self-Help family. Now Second Federal is a full-service division of SHFCU.
