Pro Mujer in Bolivia is a women’s development organization that provides its clients with access to microfinance, business and empowerment training, preventive health education and high- quality, low-cost primary health care. This combination of health, human development, and financial services, differentiates Pro Mujer from other health organization and microfinance institutions (MFIs). The health program offered by Pro Mujer provides primary health services and education regarding basic health issues in order to improve the quality of life and well- being of its clients and their families. The combination of health with microloans and savings, attempts to interrupt the connection between poverty and poor health. Women have access to loans and savings to start and grow microenterprises and to high quality health services to protect their assets and improve their ability to successfully participate in the economic and social development of their communities and country.
