Minnesota's CUs boost lending in 3Q
MINNEAPOLIS (1/17/13)--Members of Minnesota's credit unions borrowed more during the third quarter, a reflection of the state economy's gradual improvement, according  to the  Minnesota Credit Union Network's quarterly report.   

Minnesota credit unions' loan balances increased 1.5% in the third quarter from the prior quarter, and were 4.5% higher than a year earlier (Dolan Media Newswires Jan. 16).

Also, the MnCUN report indicated:

  • Borrowing to finance new autos helped propel the quarterly rise, with volumes increasing 5.7% above June 30 levels.
  • Credit union memberships in the state also expanded by 3.9%, compared with third quarter 2011.
  • Minnesota members' savings continued to grow, with savings balances increasing 8.9 % from a year ago.
