HOPE spreading In the Mississippi Delta

The Hope Credit Union (HOPE) announced plans Tuesday to open two full-service branches in Drew and Shaw, Mississippi. According to a press release, the new locations round out a five site cluster of HOPE branches in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, one of this nation's most unbanked regions.

The announcement was made during the Financial Inclusion Forum hosted by the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the U.S. Agency for International Development in Washington D.C.  

"Delta communities need strong development finance tools to thrive," said HOPE CEO Bill Bynum. "We are excited to work with our long-time partner Regions Bank to create new opportunities for Drew and Shaw."

The new branches will increase HOPE's network to 26 locations in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee. Services offered by HOPE include checking and savings accounts, and consumer, mortgage and business loans.
