Latin America's best bank for corporate responsibility 2020: Vision Banco
Awards for Excellence 2020
This year Vision Banco wins the award for Latin America’s best bank for corporate responsibility.
The firm is both a member of the Principles for Responsible Banking and the Global Alliance for Banking on Values, underscoring its commitment to environment and society.
From just seven employees in 1992, the bank now looks after 800,000 clients and $1.2 billion in Paraguay. Under president Humberto Camperchioli Galeano, its employees have also consistently pushed themselves to be leaders in sustainability.
The bank is a force in microfinance, while inclusion is one of its core values. As one of the leading digital banks in the country, Vision Banco is able to reach into rural areas of Paraguay to provide microcredit as well as banking services.
Building financial resiliency is the bank’s core focus. In 2019, it reached more than 5,000 people with its financial education programme, totalling 1,220 hours of training.
Vision Banco was also the first Paraguayan private financial company to present a sustainability report.
