Answer: 
DCU offers Savings Secured Loans. This allows you to use funds available in your Savings Account for collateral against the loan. If you choose a loan amount of $1000 the funds would need to be on deposit in a DCU Savings Account. We would then place a hold on those funds until the loan is paid in full.
