Like so many fledgling credit unions, DuTrac CCU started its journey in a small office (inside the plant), with few members (56), and modest capital (about $2,000 in deposits and outstanding loans of $1,195). Following a charter change, natural growth, and mergers with a few other credit unions, DuTrac CCU is currently Iowa’s fifth largest credit union, with more than 48,500 members and assets in excess of $838 million.
