Cooperative Bank of Karditsa Coop.L.L.

2016

Summary :

he Cooperative Bank of Karditsa (CBK) was founded in 1994 upon the initiative of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Karditsa. In 1996, CBK opened the main branch of the Bank in the city of Karditsa. In April 1998, CBK fulfilled all the requirements laid down by the Bank of Greece to start functioning as a Credit Institution. The response of the local community has been very positive despite the fact that the prefecture of Karditsa is predominantly rural, with a development based mainly on the primary sector and lagging secondary and tertiary sectors. A milestone for the Bank was the special license acquired in 2007 allowing transactions with non-members and transforming the Bank to an important development tool for the Karditsa Prefecture with solutions for all borrowing needs of local citizens.
