Bradesco Bank S.A. is one of the largest banks in Brazil. It was first established on March 10, 1943, in the city of Marília, São Paulo. It was a pioneer in the Brazilian banking industry in a number of ways. First, the managers of their banks directly interacted with the customers who had accounts with them. They also were the first bank in Brazil to introduce juvenile accounts so that the children of their banking customers could also become accustomed to saving money in an account and earning interest.
Amador Aguiar was the founder of Bradesco Bank. His goal was to expand the bank across the nation and be a bank that worked for the people. He also wanted his bank to contribute to the economic and social well-being of the communities in which it operated. He was able to soon expand the bank to seven branches in the southern portion of Brazil.
At the time Bradesco Bank was established bankers pretty much only catered to wealthy people like owners of large amounts of land and entrepreneurs. Bradesco Bank was different in that while it provided services to these people they also served people like farmers, immigrants, and small business owners. The managers of each branch sat down with clients and taught them how to do things like balance an account and how to write a check.
