How successful a credit union is at earning money affects its long-term survivability. Earnings may be retained by the credit union, boosting its capital buffer, or be used to deal with problematic loans, likely making the credit union more resilient in times of trouble. Losses, on the other hand, reduce a credit union's ability to do those things.
