In 2011, we signed a contract with the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a World Bank institution that supports private investment in developing countries. This agreement (which allows a variety of financing options in more than 230 international banks) is the first of its kind to be signed by a Brazilian cooperative bank.
Since 2010, we have worked with Rabobank (one of the largest financial institutions in the cooperative industry) with the goal of developing credit unions as an economic organizational model. The main result of the partnership is the Technical Assistance Program, which promotes exchanges of skills, knowledge and best practices between the two institutions.
Sicredi was sustainable long before the word took over the corporate world. An institution is sustainable when it generates economic results while also protecting the environment and improving the quality of life of the people it interacts with. It must also balance financial results and community development.
Sicredi is a cooperative financial institution that values regional economies, creates business opportunities and helps its members develop. A system of credit unions focused on sustainable growth that is growing closer to people and communities each day, as they are the reason for its existence.

Cooperativism is an economic system that makes cooperatives the basis of all wealth production and distribution activities. Established in Europe in the nineteenth century, they were created by artisans and merchants as an answer to the centralization of capitalist resources and communist extremism.
Today, almost 200 years later, this model is increasingly gaining strength. Based on voluntary membership of people focused on a common goal, cooperatives bring together millions of people around the world to participate in projects that generate income and job opportunities, transforming the realities of whole communities.
The various types of cooperative associations include credit unions. Created to offer financial solutions according to the needs and conditions of members, these are an important incentive instrument for social and economic development. This is because they use their assets to finance their members' activities, keeping resources in the communities where they were generated.
In Latin America, credit unions emerged in 1902, in the city of Linha Imperial in the municipality of Nova Petrópolis, in Rio Grande do Sul, where the first was established by Swiss priest Theodor Amstad. Today, this credit union is part of Sicredi, and is called Sicredi Pioneira RS.
