It&#39;s about the size of a modest living room. A few bank tellers are behind thick glass. A big sign on the wall announces &ldquo;4,000 Members&rdquo; in green lettering. This is where Sayala Eisner-Mix, the Community Programs Coordinator of PFCU works. She&#39;s about to begin a credit report review, her third one today.</p> Mon, 06 Feb 2012 20:20:18 +0000 Mazuri Colley 5444 at http://kalw.org Credit union serves Oakland's "unbanked" population
