Abstract

This study investigates the interactions between the financial health of cooperative banks and the performance of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Using a unique dataset on local banking markets in Poland, we establish that a strong financial standing of SMEs improves the profitability of banks that operate in the same neighborhood; however, the growth of banks is not affected. In contrast, the financial situation of cooperative banks is generally irrelevant for SME performance.
