Ancienne Caisse d'Epargne de Niort

The aid and the mutuality is specific to the nineteenth century. Against a contribution, the workers and employees with modest incomes receive social protection in case of great necessities. The law of 1835 obliges philanthropic companies to deposit their reserves in the Caisses d'Epargne.
That of Niort, founded the same year, but decided in 1833 by the mayor, was first installed at the City Hall until 1850 with a first municipal capital of 4000 fr. and an additional contribution of 6000 fr. following the "call to charity of the notable persons of the city".
She then moved to a building built in 1892 by Niortais architect Georges Lasseron, the headquarters of the Socram Bank since 2014. The decoration, like that of many similar buildings, is ostentatious, whereas they were only places of conservation of all the funds of modest savers.
