Pro Mujer is committed to providing at-risk women in Latin America with the means to build livelihoods for themselves and their families through financial services, business and empowerment training, and health care support. Over the past 24 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. Pro Mujer delivers its services through 26,570 communal banks and operates 164 centers across Latin America. MasterCard has invested in Pro Mujer’s migration to a new information technology platform and core banking system to allow the organization to significantly scale business and grow its client base, increase the efficiency of Pro Mujer’s operations and reduce the cost of services to clients, ultimately allowing Pro Mujer to expand its services.
