Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I may remember. Involve me and I will understand.

A personal example is the strongest statement, and the involvement of partners, clients and employees in joint actions is a way to reinforce our relationship with them. In that respect, ProCredit Bank organises events on topics that emphasise and strengthen the fundamental principles that the bank stands for.
ProCredit Bank issued 50% of the total outstanding volume of agricultural loans in Serbia. This is testimony to our understanding of the local agricultural sector and our support for its development. In keeping with this commitment, the ProCredit Bank’s ProAgro Leader contest is an opportunity for the bank to celebrate the achievements of agricultural producers who make prudent investments, record exceptional output and successfully develop and improve their facilities.
Prizes include study trips to famous European agricultural events and to successful producers throughout Europe – in Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Austria and Italy; wherever there are good examples and opportunities to gain new knowledge, exchange information and establish contacts. The jury is comprised of experts from the fields of agriculture, banking and the media, and is supported by the relevant ministry. Prizes are awarded in four categories – small, medium-sized and large businesses and energy efficiency improvement in agriculture.
