Collaborations are active with various entities to facilitate credit to people or small businesses in difficulty.
Financial inclusion of vulnerable people
Support of people in vulnerable conditions is offered through projects and initiatives aimed at the fair allocation of resources by identifying actors within the territory with whom agreements and synergies can be developed that will make access to credit easier for vulnerable individuals or those who would otherwise have no access to banking.
High social impact initiatives
In 2021, the Intesa Sanpaolo Group provided new loans for activities with a high social impact of around 20.6 billion euro (26.6% of total loans granted by the Group in 2021), contributing to create entrepreneurial and employment opportunities as well as helping people in difficulty through different forms: microcredit; anti-wear loans; products and services for Third sector associations and entities; products dedicated to the most vulnerable social categories to foster their financial inclusion; funding to support populations affected by catastrophic events; moratoriums on current loans.

** It includes medium/long term loans provided by the Third Sector network and by Banks in Italy. In 2021, the total of high social impact loans accounted for 26.6% of total loans disbursed by the Group (vs 42.5% in 2020). The trend of high social impact loans is mainly influenced by the disbursements relating to 2020 in favour of the category most hard hit by COVID-19, in response to the first phase of the pandemic, which were higher than in 2021. More specifically, in 2021 almost 14 billion euro in loans were granted by the Group as part of the “Liquidity Decree” (approximately 43 billion euro since the start of the health emergency).
