With 265 CDFI certified credit unions and collective assets of more than $45 billion, the CDFI certified credit union industry, the CDFI certified credit union industry is growing, and today provides services to more than 5.5 million primarily low-income consumers. These institutions aren't defined by asset size or FOM, but by their commitment to financial inclusion and community development. CDFI credit unions are among the most innovative in our industry and demonstrate that serving LMI markets is both a business opportunity and a part of our philosophy as financial cooperatives.
