Unicaja Banco and Cooperativa Radio-Taxi de Valladolid have renewed their collaboration agreement, strengthening the relationship held for 16 years with this association which groups 376 of the existing 474 licenses to operate as taxi drivers in the city. The members of the cooperative will have access to different credit alternatives under advantageous terms, which will facilitate the development of their activities. Unicaja Banco provides a solution for one of the main financial and technological demands of these professionals, while helping mitigate the effects caused by the coronavirus health crisis.
The agreement has been signed by Unicaja Banco’s Regional Manager in Valladolid, Manuel Rubio, and by the President of Cooperativa Radio-Taxi Valladolid, Ángel Luis Lorenzo.
Unicaja Banco is increasing its cooperation with the different associations of freelancers in Valladolid and in Castilla y León, a core region of the bank, where it continues to act as an economic agent boosting the economic and social development. This support has been increased as a consequence of the situation caused by the coronavirus crisis.
The options in the agreement include business investment loans, to acquire new vehicles or to incorporate new technologies, required to exercise as taxi drivers. The bank also makes available the ICO financing lines and the special conditions included in the agreement between Unicaja Banco and Iberaval aimed to business investment and development.
Additionally, Unicaja Banco has designed a full range of services specially designed to meet the needs of taxi drivers. With the Fee-Free Plan for the Self-Employed, these professionals may reduce or avoid fees for account maintenance, transfers, cards and cheque settlement. The management of collections with cards through PoS terminals will also have exceptional conditions. The offering is completed with special conditions in other products such as credits for cash-flow needs, mortgages and insurances.
