After Clark’s bank was continuing to hold his paycheck for 72 hours, he decided to switch to a smaller financial institution. Clark moved his checking account to First Abilene FCU in 2008. After being a member for a little over a year he sat down with his loan officer, Misty, to discuss his financial goals and a plan was laid out. His ultimate goal was to one day own his own house. Now 4 years later he has bought his second truck through First Abilene, his credit score has gone up nearly 200 points and he is in the perfect financial place to buy his first home. “Misty helped me set a plan that was achievable,” said Clark. Clark is employed by Precision Drilling as a Driller and is currently working in the Barnett Shale area. Knowing he has someone to trust with his money while out of town is his favorite thing about First Abilene.
