Mango offers customers an integrated suite of financial services ranging from prepaid cards to help users with everyday purchases to savings and investment products. The products have a competitive and simple fee structure and include free 24/7 customer service. Mango offers its products and services online at http://www.savewithmango.com and through its mobile application.

“We are very excited to have George Lopez partner with us on Mango as we continue to grow the awareness for our brand, products and services,” said Mango Co-Founder and President Bertrand Sosa, adding “George will bring an additional level of awareness to the financial issues our customers face, and the solutions available for them at Mango.”

Lopez, perhaps best known as an entertainer and for his self-produced sitcom George Lopez, has also focused his energies on battling poverty and health issues through frequent donations, community service, and relief efforts. Lopez is the founder of the Lopez Foundation, which seeks to positively impact underprivileged families and their children through increased awareness of health issues and by supporting education initiatives. He has spent many years as a spokesman for the National Kidney Foundation, in 2004 was named Artist of the Year and Humanitarian by Harvard University, and was named one of Time Magazine’s 25 Most Influential Hispanics in America.

“This is not only an opportunity to promote a great company with great products, but also a chance to make a difference in people’s lives,” said Lopez. “My grandparents, a factory worker and construction worker, who raised me, taught me the importance of hard work and financial discipline to reach my goals. I’m proud to support a company that has made it easy and affordable for people to manage and save their money to help them realize their goals,” he added.

Beyond integrating Lopez into a series of brand marketing campaigns, Mango plans on collaborating with the entertainer on innovative ways to promote financial education and new product initiatives focused on interactive media channels. As a first step of the marketing relationship, Mango has launched the “Save With Mango” campaign, where George Lopez will focus on promoting the importance of short and long-term savings in America, highlighting Mango’s high yield savings account (currently offering 6.00% APY) and innovative long term investment solutions.
