Unicaja Banco has signed, for the first time, a collaboration agreement with the Consejo Local de Hermandades y Cofradías de Cádiz (Cadiz Local Council of Brotherhoods), under which the bank puts at the disposal of this institution a specific comprehensive financial service, on advantageous terms, to facilitate the development of their activities and projects.
The wide range of Unicaja Banco’s financial products and services aims at covering the needs both of the Council itself and of the different brotherhoods that compose it.
The agreement has been signed by Unicaja Banco’s Regional Manager for Cadiz-Bahia, Francisco Javier Venzalá, and by the President of the Consejo Local de Hermandades y Cofradías de Cádiz, Juan Carlos Jurado.
This initiative falls within the actions that Unicaja Banco develops aimed at the promotion and dissemination of Holy Week in Andalusia in general and in Cadiz in particular, and of the work of Brotherhoods as the repositories of important social, religious, anthropological, cultural, historic and artistic values, and as generators of a relevant social, cultural and charitable activity in their environment.
Unicaja Banco support to the Local Council is reflected in the offer of financing facilities and services for the development of its activities.
The main features of the offer include financing transactions; current accounts with special conditions; specific services for the collection of receipts issued by the Council or tax management; services to manage payments and collections and digital banking services, such as UniVía or UniPay Bizum; collective or individual insurances for premises, eventualities, damage caused during transfers, processions or rehearsals, or at the Brotherhood’s Houses (Casas Hermandades) and museums, and other financial services.
Consejo Local de Hermandades y Cofradías de Cádiz
The Consejo Local de Hermandades y Cofradías de Cádiz was established in 1892, when a group of members of different brotherhoods set up the first Junta de Cofradías de Cádiz, in order to regulate and order the Holy Week.
It currently gathers 37 brotherhoods. Its main activities include, in addition to the organization of processions, lectures, posters, schedules and routes, via crucis, cults, retirements and courses on religious training for managers and members of the brotherhoods.
