|About||Rupanyup & Minyip Community Bank Branch is Australia’s First Community Bank and were the true pioneers of a world first banking model in Victoria’s wheat belt.|
The two country towns had always enjoyed the full services of six banks with up to four generations of families in the area remaining loyal to their family’s traditional bank.
The banks left and the two towns were left to struggle on their own. Traders‚ farmers and residents were forced into a 100-kilometre round trip to do their everyday banking.
Now, the Rupanyup/Minyip Community Bank® branch is well established and has generated over $700,000 bank into the local communities plus the 2012 grant recipients to be presented in October 2012
Community Banking is much more than just the return of banking services. Its about you and your community!
