Unsecured personal loans rose 2.1%, followed by new-auto loans (1.8%), used-auto loans (1.6%), fixed-rate mortgages (1.3%), credit card loans (1.2%), and adjustable-rate mortgages (0.9%).

Total credit union membership grew 0.4% during July to 98 million.
 
The movement's overall capital-to-asset ratios remained at 10%. The total dollar amount of capital is $111 billion.
