From the Paper:

"Capital plays a key role in all economic activities in both banks and credit unions. There are some differences between the two, but the distinctions are becoming less clear. The business of banking generally consists of borrowing and lending capital. As in other businesses, operations must be based on capital, but banks employ comparatively little of their own capital in relation to the total volume of their transactions. By contrast, credit unions use the capital of its own members to make loans within the membership. This paper will examine how banks and credit unions function to identify commonalities and differences, followed by a summary of the research in the conclusion."
