Sparkassenstiftung's work is guided by three principles: partnership-based cooperation in a spirit of mutual trust; the transfer of key success factors from the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe and the implementation of practice-oriented solutions.
Counterpart institutions are not perceived as clients but as partners. By engaging in a spirit of mutual trust, Sparkassenstiftung Albania promotes their sustainable development and works with partners to build up long-term professional relationships.
Sparkassenstiftung für internationale Kooperation e.V. is an implementing agency of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and aims to increase access, usage, and quality of financial services worldwide. Currently, Sparkassenstiftung is successfully engaged in more than 50 countries. In the course of their 200-year history, German Sparkassen have evolved into the most successful financial group in the German banking sector and they have transfered their knowledge and success factors – adapted to suit local conditions – around the world.
Sparkassenstiftung owes its success to the expertise and practical experience of the people employed in the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe. Together with local experts trained by Sparkassenstiftung, practitioners channel their state-of-the-art knowledge into the design of customised solutions and assist their partner institutions to implement them. Besides making for a high degree of acceptance, this approach also secures project success over the longer term.
