A small Oregon credit union has broadened its service area more than six-fold by crossing the Willamette River to include Portland and the rest of the state’s Lower Willamette Basin.

Clackamas Community Federal Credit Union of Milwaukie, Ore., seven miles south of Portland across the Willamette River ($577.3 million in assets, 34,313 members), announced Thursday that its field of membership has expanded from just Clackamas County, and its estimated 2019 population of 418,187, to include 2.4 million other people in Marion, Multnomah, Polk, Washington and Yamhill counties.
