Aug. 15--Wisconsin's 166 state-chartered credit unions reported net income that totaled $119.6 million for the six months that ended June 30, up from $110.3 million net income for the same period last year.
Loans totaled nearly $19 billion, up from $17.3 billion, and the ratio of delinquent loans fell to 0.98 percent from 1.26 percent.
"Delinquent loan ratios are now at pre-recession levels," said Kim Santos, director of the Office of Credit Unions in the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions.
"That's a very encouraging sign," Santos said.
