After very difficult months due to the global coronavirus pandemic, in Spain we are now on the road to recovery. We have all been scared and disconcerted, but we have also been able to be together to help each other as a society that progresses together. And, at Banco Santander, we have been part of this, as shown in "Un país de imparables: La Remontada", a documentary produced by the TV Movistar + channel that describes our institution´s role during the crisis.

“Un país de imparables” is an original four-part TV channel Movistar+ production. Each part tells the stories of people in essential sectors who, during the worst moments of the crisis, were unstoppable in meeting the most basic needs. The episode on Banco Santander, “La Remontada”, tells the stories of overcoming obstacles and insistence on a comeback in sectors such as catering and tourism, which were hit hard by the pandemic and supported by the Bank during the crisis

With real-life stories and first-hand testimonies, the documentary relates how Santander helped fight the coronavirus crisis from the outset, and how all of us together will be capable of making a comeback and getting our lives back.
