Pro Mujer is a top organization based in NYC focused on the mission to fight world poverty. Microfinance is a strong global avenue to achieve this. Pro Mujer's concentration on women in Latin America exemplifies the organization's strategy to do one thing at a time, do it very well, before moving on. The near and long term prospects for Pro Mujer are extremely promising and no doubt will be life-changing for many people across the globe. As an active volunteer, I have heard many of Pro Mujer's clients speak graciously about the results of the programs aiding business, healthcare and education. Get involved and join efforts with Pro Mujer if you feel passionate about women empowerment, local entrepreneurship, and the fight against poverty!

I am particularly proud to have helped Pro Mujer's mission as a donor and past volunteer on the Junior Committee. While part of the Junior Committee I was able to travel to Nicaragua and meet some of the women and families that benefit from the services that Pro Mujer provides. There is no doubt in my mind that thousands of individuals have gained invaluable skills and self-confidence through Pro Mujer, and that they have become an integral part of their local economies as a result. Pro Mujer gives it's clients a sense of self-worth along with a community for ongoing support. These things, along with Pro Mujer's committment to women's health which is a pilar of community health, has inspired me to continue to give in any way I can.

I've been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to witness ProMujer's dedication to the empowerment of women through microfinance and other development initiatives for the past two years. Whether at a black-tie event in New York City or a local health clinic in rural Nicaragua, everyone I have come into contact with involved with ProMujer is passionate about the cause and carries a genuine belief in ProMujer's ability to affect change across the globe.

ProMujer is a wonderful organization with far reaching impact. I have had the opportunity to sit and speak with various country directors and well as communal bank directors to hear their stories about how women benefit from ProMujer's services and support network. It is not just the women who are served by ProMujer, but also their families. The numbers associated with ProMujer are astounding, 99% of the women repay their loans in full, hundred of thousands of women served, and millions more children and extended family. This means ProMujer is doing something very right. When speaking with the founders, Lynn and Carmen, and the country directors across Latin America, it is impossible not to want to help this organization and become obsessed with their mission. ProMujer is filled with such talented and dedicated people who are constantly coming up with new creative ways to approach women's empowerment in Latin America.

I am not only impressed by Pro Mujer's commitment to creating self-reliant communities but by their focus on cultivating a new generation of leaders in microfinance. Their commitment to education is evidenced by their active junior committee, their publications, and their focus on training women to better their own lives. I am impressed by Pro Mujer’s ability to connect women across the world by creating a solidarity network.

While fairly new to ProMujer, I have been consistently impressed with the organization as a whole. It's not just my faith in the staff, but also the published results of their microfinance and health initiatives providing me evidence of the impact of my donation

I have been blown away during my fairly short time with ProMujer. While the organization's holistic and effective approach to breaking the poverty cycle is what initially lead me to seek involovement with the organization, the dedication of the staff and fellow volunteers has only made me want to increase that level of support.

The integrity and innovation that underpin's Pro Mujer's work mirrors the tenacity and resources fullness of their clients. Pro Mujer remains true to and focused on their mission of empowering women, and they are rigorous about building programs that target their clients needs and about measuring their impact. I have been repeatedly impressed by the emotional intelligence and skill of Pro Mujer's staff in country and in headquarters. For all of these reasons and more, I support Pro Mujer.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen Pro Mujer held up as a model at multiple local and international microfinance events, including the Latin American and Global Microcredit Summits. Their impact on the industry is clear in that their organizational structure and services provide gold-standard examples for other growing organizations.

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

I was motivated to give to Pro Mujer after studying microfinance at university and working to push industry standards forward through the Microcredit Summit Campaign and www.MFIConnect.com. When I met with Pro Mujer, I felt like I had found a perfect window to get behind one of the orgs I admire most.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

I donate annually because I want to see Pro Mujer meet their goals of reaching double the number of women in Latin America and deepening their impact. I also trust their new CEO - Rosario Perez - to lead the team in achieving these goals.

What would you tell others about this organization?

You should join me in supporting them!

i have been involved with Pro Mujer for several years now as a very vocal supporter and donor. three years ago i had the opportunity to see first hand how they work with women in latin america. i went on a Pro Mujer field trip to Peru. what truly impressed me about this "microfinance" organization is what they do for their clients' health. they very early realized that the women in this communities was the primary earner in most of the families, and without healthcare, if they became ill there would be no bread on the table. however, like everything else at Pro Mujer, the healthcare services are not free, they believe that the women should pay for what they receive. in many of their offices the first thing you see when you enter is the health clinic and not the banking side of the operation. they have documented statistics of how they have reduced breast and uterine cancer with their customers versus other community members. by dedicating their financial and health services to women they have an astounding success rate in loan payback and improved healthcare. what a truly fantastic organization. i am proud to be a very small contributor to this group.
