Microcredits to fight poverty and to provide sufficient education
Microcredits in developing countries have proven to be a solution-oriented means to put families in a position to provide for themselves , thus break out of the cycle of poverty.
The Deutsche Bank Microcredit Development Fund and the Global Commercial Microfinance Consortium support the idea of microfinance and make an important contribution to the development of stable economic structures.
Low interest loans are made to local microfinance institutions who use the money as collateral receiving at least double the amount in local currency.
Microcredits are granted to founders of small businesses who use them to build a small business, acquire better equipment, or to be able to operate a retail trade.
Candida Gutiérrez from Nicaragua started a street sale business with the help of a microcredit, worth about US $ 115. Today, ten years later, she applies for a loan of more than US $ 5.000,00, in order to build a spa in Managua.

Any statement in this presentation that states our intentions, beliefs, expectations or predictions (and the assumptions underlying them) is a forward-looking statement. These statements are based on plans, estimates and projections as they are currently available to the management of Deutsche Bank. Forward-looking statements therefore speak only as of the date they are made, and we undertake no obligation to update publicly any of them in light of new information or future events.
By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties. A number of important factors could therefore cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. Such factors include the conditions in the financial markets in Germany, in Europe, in the United States and elsewhere from which we derive a substantial portion of our trading revenues, potential defaults of borrowers or trading counterparties, the implementation of our management agenda, the reliability of our risk management policies, procedures and methods, and other risks referenced in our filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
