Pro Mujer is a leading development organization that provides women in Latin America with financial, health and human development services that are typically out of reach, but essential to breaking the cycle of poverty. These services help empower women to gain the financial independence, knowledge and self-esteem they need to become agents of change at home and in their communities.
Founded in Bolivia in 1990, Pro Mujer also operates in Argentina, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru and is headquartered in New York City. Over the past 22 years, Pro Mujer has disbursed more than US$1 billion in small loans and reached more than 1.6 million women and their 6.4 million children and family members.
