BISMARCK, N.D. (3/4/14)--In its first full year of operations, Midwest Business Solutions (MWBS), the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas' agricultural/commercial loan credit union service organization, reported total loan closings of more $40 million and outstanding balances of $20.3 million at the end of 2013. 
 
"The core of our group is the equity members and subscribers that we have," said MWBS President Phil Love, adding, "We paid two of our equity partners more in one year than they invested into our CUSO."
