These charts from the National Federation of Community Development Credit Union’s report, “Financial Trends in Community Development Credit Unions” illustrates that while credit unions reaching out to serve the underserved have been struggling in the downturn, there has been some good news.In 2008, CDCUs, collectively, saw growth in five of seven loan categories, with only “other secured” and “new vehicle” loans showing declines.
