BOLIVIA

History

Bolivia is the birthplace of Pro Mujer. Established in 1990, Pro Mujer’s initial focus was on education, health, family planning and child development for women who were receiving donated food. The program expanded its mission when the women insisted that their priority was making money to support their families.

Pro Mujer currently has national coverage in Bolivia and works with impoverished women in all of the country’s nine regions. Pro Mujer’s clients are primarily women between the ages of 21 and 45, and a majority of them reside in small cities and engage in commercial activity, often in local markets or selling goods produced in businesses operating out of their homes.
