The National Credit Union Administration has allowed four small credit unions to sharply increase their fields of membership.

The largest expansion was granted to First Service FCU, a $40 million- asset institution in Groveport, Ohio, which last week got permission to serve the one million people living in Franklin County, including Columbus. First Service's current field of membership is limited to the 22,000 people living in five parts of the county.
