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.

Erzsébet Szekeres is the mother of a disabled boy and the founder of the Rehabilitation Centre in Csömör, Hungary. Opened thirty years ago, the centre was the very first non-profit organisation in the country. Back then, even the experts did not believe that disabled people could work and create quality products. “But I had experience with my own child. I knew how much he could develop and how to achieve that. That’s why I believed that every developmentally challenged person can develop their skills.”

Learn more about Erzsébet’s personal story and how she established the centre not only as a working place, but also as a home and family environment for these people.
