By the judge Dr.Hermann Schulze-Delitzsch, member of the Prussian national assembly and the Reichstag, today's district town Delitzsch became known. In 1849 he founded the "Associations" in Delitzsch with far-sightedness (recognizing the plight of the craft threatened by the industrial revolution), in 1850 the Advance Loan Association, the later credit cooperatives and today's Volksbanks.
From 1861, the Democrat publisher of the leaves for cooperatives and founded in 1865 the German Cooperative Bank. Already at that time, unlike Friedrich Raiffeisen, he rejected any state aid and insisted on the principles of self-help, self-government and self-responsibility.
