November Project Update - Inaugurating Community Change

Celebrating the inauguration of the plant!
Celebrating the inauguration of the plant!

November was an exciting month for the IMIFAP “I want to, I can” microfinance program! After months of saving, preparation and hard work, bank members in Ixmiquilpan celebrated the inauguration of their water purification plant. These microfinance participants are not only changing their own lives, they are changing their communities!

Also last month, five new banks were started in Molango, Hidalgo, adding 69 participants to the program. IMIFAP’s local facilitators visited the communities to help get the banks started and establish the members’ “rights and responsibilities”.

Our program participants didn’t wait until the New Year to make a new beginning and a positive change in their lives, and neither should you! Help make a difference today by continuing to support microfinance in these communities.

En noviembre celebramos nuevos avances y nuevos comienzos para el programa de microfinanzas en Hidalgo. Después de meses de ahorrar, preparar y trabajar arduamente, los miembros del banco en Ixmiquilpan festejaron la inauguración de su planta de purificación de agua. ¡Los participantes del programa de microfinanzas no tan solo están cambiando sus vidas, sino están mejorando sus comunidades!

También durante el mes pasado, se abrieron cinco nuevos bancos con 69 socios en total en el municipio de Molango. Los facilitadores locales de IMIFAP visitaron las comunidades para ayudarles a los bancos a arrancar y establecer los derechos y responsabilidades de los miembros.

Nuestros participantes no esperaron hasta el Año Nuevo para crear un nuevo comienzo y cambio positivo en sus vidas, y ¡tú tampoco deberías de esperar! Haz una diferencia hoy al continuar a apoyar las microfinanzas en estas comunidades.
