To continue promoting the growth of entrepreneurship, micro, and small businesses, so they can generate economy and employment for the people of Yucatan, Governor Mauricio Vila launched the distribution of a total of 1,146 supports from the MicroYuc Productive program and 221 from the MicroYuc Social program to beneficiaries throughout the state. This support represents a total investment of 7.8 million pesos.
At the sports courts of the Instituto del Deporte en el Estado (IDEY), the Governor led the start of the delivery of this program, which has provided 27,000 support and credits since the beginning of his administration. The program consists of providing tools and supply packages for the productive aspect and financing for the social aspect.
One of the beneficiaries in the productive aspect is Ligia María Dzul Canul, who sells goods in different markets in the city. She received a tricycle from Vila Dosal, which will allow her to transport her merchandise more easily and with less expense, as she previously had to pay for a motorcycle taxi service.
“They are giving me a tricycle so that I can move my sales without having to pay someone else. This represents savings because the money that I used to spend on transportation can now be used for other things,” she highlighted.
The resident of the Emiliano Zapata Sur III neighborhood thanked Vila Dosal for this support, as it represents a relief for her family and a great incentive to continue working hard to improve their situation.
In his speech, the Governor stated that this strategy aims to support the people of Yucatan who want to start or improve their businesses, to make their efforts yield better and greater results, especially for those who need it the most.
Accompanied by the Mayor of Mérida, Renán Barrera Concha, and the Secretary of Social Development (Sedesol), Roger Torres Peniche, Vila Dosal affirmed that his administration is committed to ensuring that everyone in Yucatan has opportunities to obtain better employment, given the significant economic dynamics that are present, and to strengthen their businesses or commercial ventures.
“Not everyone wants or can work in companies, which is why we seek for the benefits seen in job creation to reach everyone equally,” he emphasized.
He mentioned that Yucatan is experiencing a historic moment, as 2021 has been the year with the highest economic growth and job creation in the region, while 2022 has seen the highest number of tourists and the largest inflow of foreign direct investment.
To continue closing the gaps of inequality, the Governor indicated that in addition to programs like MicroYuc, efforts are being made to improve public transportation with the new “Va y Ven” system, which already includes the Periférico, Metropolitano, Aeropuerto, and Centro-Fraccionamiento Las Américas routes, and in a few weeks, the Centro-Francisco de Montejo route will be launched.
“MicroYuc and Va y Ven are some of the changes we are making to transform Yucatan for the better, so that boys and girls have a better state than the one we inherited, and that’s why I invite you to work together to achieve better results,” emphasized Vila Dosal.
In turn, Mayor Renán Barrera Concha highlighted that the creation of social programs, such as those offered by the Municipality and the State Government, allows for the promotion of self-employment and entrepreneurship in the region, so that more Yucatecan families can progress, increase their income, and improve their economic condition and quality of life.
