The aim of the paper is to characterize and asses alternative (non-commercial) forms of financial activity: credit unions and social lending. Such institutions, in contrast to banking entities, are not focused solely on incomes, but try to achieve also other goals, often of social character and those which may be conducive to local community where the institutions operate. With reference to those agents/activities, there are described theoretical background of their functioning, their types, scale of activity in the EU countries and main features of those entities along with advantages and disadvantages of non-commercial financial intermediaries.
Celem artykułu jest charakterystyka i ocena alternatywnych (niekomercyjnych) form działalności finansowej: unii kredytowych i pożyczek społecznych jako alternatywy dla banków komercyjnych. Instytucje te nie koncentrują się wyłącznie na zyskach, ale starają się osiągnąć inne cele, często o charakterze społecznym, mogące sprzyjać społeczności lokalnej. W tym kontekście opisano syntetycznie teoretyczne podstawy ich funkcjonowania, ich typy, skalę aktywności w krajach UE oraz główne cechy tych podmiotów, a także zalety i wady niebankowych pośredników finansowych.
