After the Belgrade Credit Bureau and the First Bank of Serbia, The First Credit Bank of Smederevo was founded in 1871. Having in mind that Smederevo of that time was a border town where trading business was flourishing between Serbia and mostly Austria – Hungary, the founding of money Bureau had its purpose to enable economy transactions as efficient as possible. The bank was founded upon the agreement reached at the Saint Day celebration in the Rašić Family in 1870,  among the most notable merchants of Smederevo, big business representatives and the then emerging bourgeoisie. The first president of the Temporary Bank committee was a merchant Mata Popović, a deputation member, which returned Miloš Obrenović in 1858 to Serbia, and a vice-president was Dina Mančić, a merchant, later a benefactor of the town Smederevo. Together with them, the founders were: Janaćije Konstantinović, the owner of the first mill in Smederevo and a latter member of Parliament, and municipality president Georgije Nuša, Jovan Špartelj, Jefrem Marić, Stojan Rašić, innkeeper Anastas Tomić-Kalkarelja, member of Parliament and municipality president Gavrilo Čupić, attorney Mihajlo Stojkovac, Djordje Pavlović and Tasa Stojanović.
