Cooperative Bank of Karditsa Coop.L.L.

The 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.

The CBK offers a wide range of products and services addressing the needs of businesses, entrepreneurs and individuals while retaining a small exposure to risk and maintaining a healthy status for the Bank’s balance sheet. Furthermore, the bank offers a wide range of services to its customers including:

  • All sorts of saving accounts schemes;
  • Loans including working capital, personal / consumer / housing / car purchase / professional equipment loans and guarantees;
  • A wide range of Web banking services including a Mobile Alert service;
  • ATM services in all branches and other locations;
  • Money transfer services;
  • Insurance services in cooperation with the Cooperative Insurance and covering the complete range of insurance services;
  • Member of the Greek “DIAS” interbank system allowing for payments, money transfer and fund management in general;
  • Center of Electronic Payments within the bank branches;
  • Debit and Credit card services;

The bank has a permit to manage European funded programs thus participating in several subsidy programs and guaranteed loan programs of TEMPME and ETEAN.
