As noted in Principle 5, Fair and Respectful Treatment of Clients, financial services providers and their agents will treat their clients fairly and respectfully and will not discriminate. This is an area in which Fundación Paraguaya, an MFI demonstrates prolific commitment. With a comprehensive non-discrimination policy composed of ten standards, Fundación Paraguaya enforces that every employee, official, and client respect and obey its policy to foster an equal and productive environment for all. Fundación Paraguaya does not discriminate based on abilities, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or political affinities.
Fundación Paraguaya has shared its non-discrimination policy, which makes part of their Code of Ethics, with the Smart Campaign to be used as a tool for other institutions to emulate as they strive to implement non-discrimination policies of their own.
