CSR begins at home: Banesco supports its employees to purchase their own homes
Corporate Social Responsibility begins at home, declares Banesco’s Chairman of the Board of Directors, Juan Carlos Escotet Rodriguez. That is a tangible sign “also a motive of satisfaction and pride” of the suitability of our philosophy as an organization. Hence our efforts have been concentrated, among other benefits, on the satisfaction of the basic need to own a home, intimately linked to the improvement of the living conditions of our human capital and its family environment.
During the year 2009 we granted 897 mortgage loans with our own resources, and 942 unsecured loans, both for the purchase and refurbishing of homes. Additionally, for the second year, we carried out a Housing Fair (“Feria Habitacional”) at Ciudad Banesco, in which numerous companies offered our employees home solutions at special prices.
Aware that the right to a home is a human necessity that dignifies the life of our workers and strengthens family links, we are pleased that over the past four years we have supported more than 3,623 employees in their objective of achieving that basic goal for their wellbeing and that of their loved ones.
