What we do

Life happens. Sometimes all you need is a friend to be there to help you get up when life knocks you down. Here at Foti Financial Services we are “A Friend When You Need Us”. We provide financial services to clients who need a quick solution to life’s problems. We are a company you can rely on to be accountable and responsible with your money. When assessing lending needs, we focus on the relationship we have with our customers, while also looking out for their best interest.

Why we do it

Foti Financial Services was started in1955 in Donaldsonville, LA by Dr. Dominc Foti. Dr. Foti wanted to help individuals who could not get financial help at banks and always prided himself with being there for the people in the community. Over 50 years later, Foti Financial Services is still there for the community. We provide the opportunity for people in communities all over South Louisiana to get money when they need it in order to better manage their lives. We are passionate about helping those who may not be able to get service elsewhere, because, perhaps it is them who needs a friend the most.

How we do it

Relationship Building
When you have a problem, that’s when you need a friend look out for you and understand your problem. At Foti Financial Services, we look out for people. We build relationships within our communities so we can be that friend. We take the time to find out what the problem is and work with you to find a solution that works for you.
Integrity
We believe in always doing the right thing, even when people aren’t looking. We are always looking out for the best interest of our customers, even when they don’t quite understand the how’s or why’s of personal finance. We will always transact business in such manner as to deserve the respect and confidence of the public and will adhere to high standards of business.
Accountability
No one should ever be caught off guard by changing rates or terms, so with our set rates and terms, everything is up front. We will always explain clearly to the customers the conditions, terms and contractual obligation of all loan transactions. This will help customers understand their obligations and be accountable as well. Through our profit-sharing program instituted in 1992, our managers can invest in their branches to become minority owners of the company. This simply means that your best interest is our best interest.
Customer Service
We are here to serve you. The best way to serve you is by getting to know you. Our managers take the time to find out more about your situation, rather than just go through the motions of filling out paperwork. To us, you are more than just a credit score. We want to know what’s going on in your life so we can better understand how we can help you.
