Permaculture in Sandia Area

Permaculture is a body of thought that attempts to build ecological dynamics into design. When pertaining to Sandia Area, this means working with our members to cultivate long-term relationships, rather than maximizing short-term options with profit in mind. Sandia Area integrates the twelve principles of permaculture into our business practices in order to best serve our members, and our community.

The more our members participate in our financial cooperative and the more operationally efficient we are, the better we are able to perform. As we continue to work towards maximum efficiency, we strive to give back more to our membership and community in the form of lower loan rates, better savings rates, lower fees, and greater accessibility.
