How successful a credit union is at making money affects its long-term survivability. A credit union can retain its earnings, giving a boost to its capital buffer, or put them to work addressing problematic loans, likely making the credit union more resilient in tough times. Losses, on the other hand, take away from a credit union's ability to do those things.
