Social Banking











The European Investment Fund and Erste Group sign EUR 50 million deal to finance social enterprises in Austria and CEE

We believe that banking products and services should be accessible to everyone.

That was one of the guiding principles behind our foundation in 1819 and we are still committed to this principle today. With our Step-by-Step social banking programme we offer people on low incomes, business start-ups and social organisations fair access to basic financial products, sound financial advice and ongoing, tailored business mentoring.

The Housing Project for socially excluded in Slovakia aims to enable and empower people from the Roma community to build their own houses by providing them access to tailor-made purpose loans. An important part of this project is the financial literacy training and mentoring; to become eligible for the financing families have to build savings for one year. During this time they also get building skills training, so that they can be able to build the house by themselves.

Meet Adriana and Igor and find out why they decided to join this project and how challenging it is to change stereotypes.
