ALWAYS ON YOUR SIDE
Being on your side is a way of thinking and performing.
Now, more than ever, we are on your side at every moment, in every place.
We are a bank on the move.
On September 6, 1822, we settled as the first bank in Spanish America and printed the first Argentine bank note. Nowadays, we are proud to be a public bank that offers over $70 billion financing annually to foster the growth of families, SMEs, micro entrepreneurs and municipalities.
In 1856, we granted the first mortgage loan in the country. Since then, we have continued making the housing dream of thousands of families come true every year.
In 1941, we launched the first loan facility especially designed for the agricultural sector. In 2015, lending and financial assistance to the provincial agricultural sector grew and total loans granted throughout the year amounted to $21.49 billion, 57% over the same period of 2014.
Currently, we are the first Argentine bank in terms of microcredits; over 160,000 loans have already been granted to satisfy social needs.
In 1863, the first 3 Bank’s branches were opened. Today, there are more than 420 branches. In 2013, we started a remodeling plan and 80 branches have been already fully remodeled so as to make them more comfortable and functional. We estimate to have the plan completed by 2022, when we will celebrate our 200th anniversary.
In 1969, we incorporated information technology into our banking activities and, in 1989 we began to operate the first ATM network that today has almost 1,700 units, the largest one in the country.
Since 2013, we have implemented state-of-the-art technology and consolidated Banca Internet Provincia (BIP), our recently developed home banking platform, so that transactions may be carried out 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Bank has already more than 870,000 BIP users and over 185,000 BIP Móvil users.
In 2014, we created Espacio Provincia, a new financial channel exclusively designed to meet the needs of SMEs located in small and medium industrial clusters and operating in market niches with no banking presence.
Banco Provincia’s IT systems, security controls and the processes carried out by the Corporate Communication Unit have been awarded IRAM ISO-9001 certification.
We come closer to people by new communication channels such as Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Pinterest and Instagram, as well as by our buenosairesdemujer.com website.
We finance value chains, the settlement of entrepreneurs in industrial parks, and foreign trade. We offer the best investment options for your savings and the best benefits for your credit cards.
Every new year, we reassert our loyalty to the foundational spirit.
