As a socially responsible company, our work undertaken in the marketplace is aligned with the values that guide our corporate behavior. Throughout the years, Bladex has focused its efforts on programs aimed at promoting education and supporting children, as key factors for achieving the development of Latin American countries. Consistent with this premise, both in Panama as well as in Brazil, Ecuador, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Peru, the Bank has supported education-oriented projects, mainly in sectors at greater social risk.
Institutions and Projects We Support
Bladex is aware that, beyond its economic role, it also plays a significant role as a development agent in the communities where we are privileged to do business and therefore decided in 2013 to establish a foundation called Fundación Crece Latinoamérica. Since 2014, the foundation has been carrying out the Bank's social work both in Panama as well as the rest of the Region, working in partnership with several NGOs and government institutions.
