ProCredit institutions worldwide
Our development-oriented commercial banks specialised in working with small and medium-sized businesses are at the heart of the ProCredit group. All have full banking licences. The group also comprises a number of important support companies, including the parent company, ProCredit Holding; the ProCredit Academy; and Quipu, the group IT company. All companies are majority owned and in most cases solely owned by ProCredit Holding and all companies apply a consistent set of group standards. Financially, all group companies apply IFRS accounting standards and the group publishes consolidated financial statements on a quarterly basis.
ProCredit banks - A regional approach
All ProCredit banks (with the exception of ProCredit Bank Germany) pursue a broadly similar strategy and all are united behind the same mission statement which outlines their developmental and commercial objectives.
ProCredit has a focused regional approach which successfully allows us to make the most of the synergies between the different institutions in each region. For example, in each region we have regional IT service centres provided by Quipu. Furthermore, regional training centres have been established to support the training of staff. Training seminars and workshops are regularly organised at the regional level for all key business areas, and staff members participate in regular exchanges within each region to transfer technical skills and specialist knowledge.
Our mission statement sets the operational framework for all banks in the ProCredit group.
