Our Impact

In 1985, Curaçao was in the midst of an imminent and explosive economic and social crisis. One of the direct remedial actions to address the crisis was incorporating a national development bank by the government and social partners.

Korpodeko was founded on April 23rd, 1985, as an instrument to help achieve a balanced socio-economic, cultural and educational development of Curaçao. The way to fight economic distress was to invigorate small, medium, and large businesses and organizations and encourage micro and macroeconomic development.

Korpodeko was later categorized as a credit institution and made subject to the supervision of the regulatory environment of banks and credit institutions by the Central Bank of Curaçao and St. Maarten. Korpodeko complies with the Central Bank, as well as with international regulations.
