New Partner Spotlight: Pro Mujer
Partnering with Pro Mujer to Advance Gender Equality in Latin America
Pro Mujer was founded in 1990 in El Alto, Bolivia, by visionary leaders Lynne Patterson and Carmen Velasco, who believed that given the right opportunities, women can become powerful agents of change. From a pioneering experiment in micro-lending, Pro Mujer has become one of Latin America’s leading organizations committed to advancing gender equality in Latin America. Pro Mujer’s integrated approach drives expansion in financial inclusion, impact investing, entrepreneurship, workforce reskilling, and healthcare with a women-centered approach in its innovative programs to foster community-building and equip women with the knowledge and tools to help them thrive.
To substantially grow its philanthropic revenue and programming, Pro Mujer is partnering with Orr Group to undertake a development assessment that will strengthen its fundraising efforts. Working together, Orr Group is assessing Pro Mujer’s current state, understanding its funding capacity and the resources necessary to achieve substantial growth, and developing a comprehensive, actionable strategy geared towards achieving its short- and long-term philanthropic goals.
Orr Group is excited to support Pro Mujer in furthering its mission to empower underserved women to realize their full potential.
