Regarding First Monte de Piedad. The Nacional Monte de Piedad is a not-for-profit institution and pawnshop whose main office is located just off the Zócalo, or main plaza of Mexico City. It was established between 1774 and 1777 by Pedro Romero de Terreros, the Count of Regla as part of a movement to provide interest-free or low-interest loans to the poor. It was recognized as a national charity in 1927 by the Mexican government. In the first decade of the 21st century, it is a fast-growing institution, with over 200 branches all over Mexico and plans to open a branch in every Mexican city. Adapted from Wikipedia
