John Weberg, friend and major donor to Pro Mujer, passed on April 2nd in his home in Phoenix, Arizona. John’s generous contributions – $10 million over 12 years – enabled Pro Mujer to develop and expand its services to more than 2 million women in Latin American and to change the lives of future generations.
John’s focus was always serving the poor through financial services – loans and savings – that enabled them to start micro-enterprises and increase their assets. He never deviated from this focus founded on his belief in the desire and power of people to improve their own lives given a fair chance and a small loan.
John’s legacy will live on in the lives of the families Pro Mujer has served, and will be serving in the future, with more and better services through a platform technology designed to provide Latin American women access to urgently needed resources, services and information.
Our heartfelt condolences to his wife Jacque Weberg and his children, during this most difficult time.
