Walmart's first store outside the United States opened in Mexico in 1991 -- a Sam's Club in Mexico City. In 1997, Walmart acquired a majority position in Cifra, and in 2000 the name changed to Walmart de México (WALMEX). In 2006, Walmart de México received a license to organize and operate a bank in the country. 

In 2007, Banco de Walmart began operations with 16 branches in five states of Mexico. In 2009, Walmart de México acquired Walmart Centroamérica, expanding its presence to six countries and becoming Walmart de México y Centroamérica.
