Salta, December 27, 2016. Fundación Banco Macro announces the completion of its program `ALUMBRA tus ganas de emprender` in the Province of Salta. The program is designed to provide training, advice and coaching to business and financial projects of young people in the Province of Salta.

Fundación Macro awarded AR$3,000,000 to the 38 most outstanding entrepreneurs in the program "ALUMBRA tus ganas de emprender", who successfully completed the training and coaching stages in the creation of successful business plans. The subject chosen was "From Salta to the World" ("De Salta al Mundo") for the purpose of encouraging local entrepreneurs to think their projects in a domestic and international scale. This year the scope of the program was extended to cover four cities in the Province of Salta (San Ramòn de la Nueva Oràn, Tartagal, Rosario de Lerma and Rosario de la Frontera) in addition to Salta Capital.

From 2015 this program has supported more than 1,500 entrepreneurs in the Province of Salta providing free financial support and coaching in the framing of the business plan and customized professional mentorships.

"ALUMBRA tus ganas de emprender" is framed within the ALUMBRA project created by Fundación Banco Macro in 2014 for the purpose of fostering financial inclusion and education, with the aim of promoting credit access to lower income sectors as one of the basic strategies for overcoming poverty and creating genuine and sustainable jobs. By means of the referred program Fundación Banco Macro grants loans for production purposes through the most efficient and modern microfinance and financial inclusion practices.

"Spirit of improvement, a vision to enhance opportunities and enthusiasm to do things better or to learn those that were never attempted at. And desire, lots of desire to do things, that is what we appreciates in those entrepreneurs we support from Banco Macro", states Milagro Medrano, Representative of Fundación Banco Macro.
