Erste Group | What does Social Banking mean to us (Update Nov. 2019)


200 years ago, a revolutionary idea was born
by the founding fathers of today’s Erste Group: Everyone should get a chance to build up prosperity. Regardless of their social status, age, or gender. It’s in our DNA: We believe in all people. We also believe in those in whom others don’t. Our clients are people and organizations
who strive to change their own lives, the lives of others, and thus the world. For the better. They believe in a better future and so do we. With Erste Social Banking we provide
tailor-made affordable financial solutions accompanied by financial or
business education and mentoring to empower our clients to build prosperity. In the last 200 years,
our funding of 234 million euros supported more 3,000 entrepreneurs
in taking their first steps, 600 social organizations in pursuing their work, and almost 7,000 small farmers in tilling their fields. That funding has helped
create over 15,000 new jobs and preserve almost 30,000 jobs. For us, Social Banking is not about charity. It’s about creating equal opportunities
and making an impact in society. We’ve been doing this for 200 years and are committed to
continuing to do so in the future.
