About Fundación WWB Colombia

Fundación WWB Colombia has been supporting women micro-entrepreneurs for over 30 years, positioning itself as a leading microfinance institution in Colombia. In 2011, it created Banco WWB S.A., now Banco W, to continue its social focus as a Foundation, working on projects that promote women’s recognition and projection through training, leadership and empowerment, in order to improve their quality of life and that of their families.

With a focus on women entrepreneurs, leaders, micro-entrepreneurs, and heads of household, it has been promoting its services independently, through programs and projects that benefit the communities with which it works since 2012.
