"HawaiiUSA helped our family a lot. When I go in there, it feels like family." See how HawaiiUSA has empowered three generations of Dawn's family.


Dawn Akiona, an Educational Assistant at Campbell High School, has been a HawaiiUSA member since 1997. Family has always been a priority for her. So when she applied for a personal loan to travel to Las Vegas, it wasn’t for a vacation on the “ninth isle.” It was to see her son, who had moved there a year prior.

“And that's when I first met Suzie [Streadbeck]. She educates me about my needs. We talk story, and I'm not afraid to ask her questions. I can be me with her.” Over the years, Dawn’s children and grandchildren became members and Suzie helped them build their financial confidence also.

With personalized support plus digital tools to make daily money management more convenient, Dawn and her family are empowered to achieve bigger life goals, one wise decision at a time. “If I'm lazy to go in, I can always get on the phone and do it. It's easy for me. I can transfer money at home. There's no worries. I can see the transactions. So I enjoy the technology part.”

“When I do go into HawaiiUSA those people matter to me too because that's my community. When I go in there, it feels like family.”
