Reading Co-operative Bank, incorporated in 1886, is a progressive, one-stop, multi-branch, full-service financial institution for both personal and commercial banking. The Reading Co-operative Bank was founded just after the end of the first decade of co-operative banking in the commonwealth. That banking system was revolutionary for its time: to enable the workingman to purchase home. Larger banks loaned substantial sums to businesses and people of prominence and means, the little man was unable to compete successfully for mortgage money in such a market. The banks original commitment to the workingman has never changed, people continue to come to the Reading Co-operative Bank for home mortgages, home improvement, and other loans which help 21st-century working people live better lives. One of the first loans was given in 1887 to a woman. Throughout the Reading Co-operative Banks history, women have always had ready and equal access to loans. Mortgages continue to be the backbone of the bank, weathering widely divergent interest-rate fluctuations, recessions, inflation, and economic boom.
