In 1997, Jorge Azpurua helped to acquire Pro Vivienda Entidad de Ahorro y Prestamo C.A, a housing financial institution that turned into a Universal Bank under the BanPro label. While he worked there, Jorge A. Azpurua saw BanPro grow into a highly successful mortgage specialized bank—one of the most highly respected in Venezuela.

He learned a great deal about business operations during his time there and has used that knowledge and experience in his career later.
