Nusenda Credit Union, New Mexico’s largest credit union, announced today that it opened its first branch in Las Cruces. The branch is located in the Pan Am Plaza across from New Mexico State University’s campus at 1715 E. University Avenue. This is the credit union’s 24th branch location in New Mexico.

“Southern New Mexico is thriving, and we are excited to support its growth,” said Nusenda
President/CEO Joe Christian. “Our Pan Am branch will make it easier for current and new members in the area to access our products and services. We already have many strong relationships with businesses and nonprofit partners in Las Cruces and surrounding communities. We are glad to be doing even more to make a positive difference.”

local professionals at the Pan Am branch. The team can open new accounts, assist with loans and lines of
credit, issue debit and credit cards, provide financial counseling, and much more. Express Tellers at this

loan payment, or transfer money.
