BGK: Financing the foundations of social inclusion

A restaurant run by the visually impaired, an active seniors’ centre, a social cooperative and a social brewery are just 4 of the 1 900 social enterprises that benefitted from BGK's ESF-powered loans.

Thanks to financial instruments financed by the European Social Fund (ESF) Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego (BGK) — the Polish Development Bank — supports the development of cooperatives, foundations, associations and other social economy entities created by people at risk of exclusion and employing individuals from disadvantaged groups: seniors, persons with disability or at risk of exclusion.
