Semahn Montoute, Summer Intern
While Semahn Montoute definitely dresses for greatness each day of his internship with Grow Financial, there is more to him than just what meets the eye.
For instance, although he has lived in Brandon, Florida, for his entire life, he has been to more foreign countries than the average adult, and he’s only a senior in high school. Semahn’s mother is originally from Botswana and his father is from Trinidad and Tobago, so they’ve made a point to expose him to a variety of other cultures. An extensive travel log gives Semahn a different perspective than his peers, one that allows him to understand and relate to others.
“I am more open minded because of the experiences I’ve had in the past, especially traveling the world,” Semahn said. “I can connect with people who have different views than me.”
Beyond that, Semahn is also a talented student-athlete. As a student, he is a part of the Academy of Finance and DECA, gaining business knowledge and experience to prepare him for his future. As an athlete, he runs track and leads his soccer team as a goalkeeper. Even sports teach Semahn skills necessary for success—responsibility, dedication and leadership.
“When it comes to sports, you have to be a leader to your teammates,” Semahn said. “You want to get better and help your teammates get better as a family. Also in the workplace, like here at Grow, you’re a family.”
Semahn is using the skills he already has as well as gaining some new ones during his internship with Grow. His home base is in the real estate department, but he also has the opportunity to shadow other departments across the organization to expand his general financial knowledge. He’s enjoying his experience so much, he might even decide to come back one day.
“I could come back and get a job here someday because Grow is a really nice place to work,” Semahn said.
So what does Semahn really want to do with his life? Well, he plans to become a stock broker, and don’t worry… He’s already getting some experience investing. After learning all about stocks from his older brother a few years ago, Semahn decided to get started on his own, and he’s turning a profit on his investments.
Whatever he decides to pursue, Semahn Montoute is headed for greatness.
How to Find Your Routing & Account Numbers
When you make a payment online, by phone or on a mobile device, you may be asked for our routing number and your checking account number. Credit unions and banks use these numbers to identify accounts and make sure money gets where it’s supposed to be. You’ll also need to provide your routing and checking account numbers for:
- Direct deposits
- Electronic checks
- Military allotments
- Wire transfers
Where to Find Your Routing & Checking Account Numbers
Your personal checks include both our routing number and your account number, as shown on the Grow check example below.
Don’t have a Grow check? No worries.
Visit any Grow store and ask for a Direct Deposit Form. It lists both your routing number and checking account number.
Making a Loan Payment
When it comes to making payments, we try to make it as painless as possible to pay your loan every month. We have several different ways to pay, including convenient online options.
You have two ways to pay online by transferring funds from another bank or credit union.
- Grow Online Banking (Preferred payment method for any loan)
This is the simplest way to pay your loan. You can make one-time payments or set up automatic recurring payments in Grow Online Banking. Once you log in, select “Transfer/Payments” from the menu. If you’re not enrolled in Grow Online Banking yet, you can set up your account in just a few minutes.
- Debit Card or ACH (Available for auto, personal loans and HELOCs)
Note: ACH and debit card payments are not available for credit cards or most mortgages, except HELOCs.
We accept ACH payments with no additional fees or Mastercard® and Visa® debit cards with a convenience fee of $4.95. To get started with an online ACH or debit card payment, select Pay Now below.
Pay by Mail
You can also pay any Grow loan by check through the mail. Please remember to include your account number and Grow loan number on the check. (For credit card payments, please do not write your 16-digit credit card number on the check, which can cause a delay in processing the payment.)
