Social Banking

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.

Marko Ristovski, a customer of Erste Bank Serbia, set up an “eco hostel” with the help of Step-by-Step, which he is now in the process of expanding. He explains what is needed to operate a sustainable business in Serbia.
