Creating Opportunities for Women

Pro Mujer is a leading women's development organization committed to positively impacting the lives of our clients and their families.

Why Women?

Latin America has the highest rates of income inequality in the world. Marginalized women in the region experience overwhelming levels of gender-based violence, chronic health problems and discrimination.

Evidence shows that women invest 90% of their income back into their families and communities, as opposed to men who invest only 40%. Our work is inspired by this ripple effect, where investing in a single woman can lead to prosperity for future generations.

Our Approach Promotes…

Security by providing access to finance, which contributes to economic independence.
Health by delivering life-saving primary health care services to women in the neighborhoods where they live and work.
Solidarity  through Pro Mujer’s communal groups of female entrepreneurs, where women can find safe spaces and support from each other.
Leadership with empowerment and business training that enhances our financial services.

Catalyzing Change One Woman at a Time

I have stayed with Pro Mujer because they have given me the chance to get ahead, to progress. And it’s not just that I have been able to overcome and change, but everything that has happened to me has had repercussions for my family. The loans enable me to continue investing in and growing my business, and the health services and trainings are a great benefit for us and our families. But mostly, I stay because I feel that I have found my own space where everything is possible and where I can do what I need to do to get ahead. Pro Mujer has taught me that it is never too late to start, to never lose hope and to be responsible.

Pro Mujer is more than a microfinance pioneer. No other institution so successfully delivers programs that meaningfully improve the health and livelihoods of very poor women… By staying true to their values, Pro Mujer has created an innovative, integrated approach that is replicable and poised to become a new industry standard.
