Banque Populaire



The Banque Populaire banks have always been the partners of people who have the audacity to undertake, of people who forge ahead, who embrace the entrepreneurial spirit in the unshakable conviction that success is within everybody’s grasp, provided they give themselves the necessary means.

For this reason, the Banque Populaire advisors do their utmost to accompany, support, and bring to fruition their customers’ projects, whether large or small, personal or professional.


The Banque Populaire banks, thanks to their strong local presence, their cooperative business model and the fact they are 100%-owned by their cooperative shareholders, play a major role in the economic and social life of the French regions in all the areas of banking and insurance.

The Banque Populaire network comprises 12 Banque Populaire banks and 2 affinity-based national banking institutions: CASDEN Banque Populaire and Crédit Coopératif.

(Re)Discover 140 years of history written by the Banque Populaire

The first Banques Populaires came into being over 140 years ago, when local entrepreneurs, craftsmen and shopkeepers, hitherto excluded from banking channels, banded together to develop their own sources of financing by creating cooperative banks inspired by the humanist and mutualist movements emerging in Europe at that time.

Catalysts of corporate-citizenship initiatives: close to the solidarity-based economy

By redistributing a part of their earnings in the form of commitments to corporate-citizenship initiatives, the Banque Populaire banks actively support local activities and have been distributing a range of sustainable or socially-supportive products for more than 20 years. Crédit Coopératif, one of the 14 Banque Populaire banks, is the go-to bank for the social and solidarity-based economy and for socially committed citizens.
