June 6th, 2014: New website and other upcoming news
Blog de Novedades Anteriores
Yes, we're here and very busy! We have been working on many simultaneous fronts since we came out of our reorganizing period in the first half of 2013. Apart from the reactivation of our loaning activity to unprecedented levels, we are preparing a new website for launch in mid-2015 and a pair of educational videos to enable cooperatives to better understand the requirements for designing a loan project, and for other alternative finance organizations to replicate our methods and principles.
We have also confirmed the award of new funds from the Argentine government's microcredit program, which will enable us to expand our reach to more cooperatives and more loans in the 2nd half of 2014.
Our work with the Red Gráfica (the network of recovered factories from the printing sector) continues to benefit its member cooperatives, as our fund managing services allow them to make more efficient use of their common funds.
We continue to participate in many events and meetings in our sector, to give more visibility to the strengths and lessons of the cooperative model and our own alternative financial model.
Our sibling organizations in Nicaragua and the United States continue to inspire and inform our own work, as we strengthen our communications between the three branches.
And we are meeting new cooperatives every month that add to our target population, as we continue to work with our old acquaintances and meet new partners in our goal of creating better jobs and a more fair economy in Argentina.
So we look forward to being able to present all this activity in a brand-new, more dynamic and attractive website over the next month. See you there!
