'Swap Meet' Boosts CU Lending

Deere Community CU held its first "Swap Meet" last weekend in which 140 owners of used vehicles met to sell, buy and trade cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and recreational vehicles.

Sellers were required to preregister their vehicles, allowing the credit union to list an asking price in the local newspaper before the meet. More than 250 people, half of them non-credit union members, attended the event, which resulted in nine credit union loans and several new members.
