BANCO W

Founded in 1980 in Cali, Colombia, the institution operated until 2012 as Fundación WWB Colombia, a non-governmental (NGO) microfinance institution (MFIs) and the first affiliate to the Women’s World Banking (WWB) Network in Colombia.   Banco W remains a member of the WWB Network but WWB is not currently involved with the operations of Banco W in any formal capacity.  In 2010 the Fundación underwent a transformation to become Banco W S.A, a commercial bank, operating under the regulations of the Superintendencia Financiera (SF, the financial supervisor).  

As part of OPTIX, Banco W is working on developing and implementing new channel strategy, rationalizing current savings products to provide clear value proposition and introducing a Financial Services Advisory tool.
