The aim of this study was to identify the dominance behavior in credit unions affiliated to the Sicoob-Crediminas system in Minas Gerais state, Brazil. Borrower-dominated unions are those that offer low borrowing rates and also low saving rates, while saver-dominated unions practice higher rates for savings as well as for loans. The results indicate that Sicoob-Crediminas unions are dominated by borrowing members, with better savings and loan rates, in comparison to the rates committed by the banking system.
