Mexico’s Consular Network includes 50 offices across the US that not only provide traditional travel and immigration services, but also plays a broad role in providing education to the Mexican community in the US. One of these areas of focus is the promotion of financial inclusion, occurring this year from April 4th through the 8th, through financial education and facilitating connections with financial institutions interested in meeting the needs of this population.
We invite you to learn about the Semana de Educación Financiera (Financial Education Week), an annual initiative led by the Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores through the Instituto de los Mexicanos en el Exterior (IME), in partnership with Mexican government, and the network of Mexican Consulates in the US and Canada. The Semana de Educación Financiera seeks to educate the Mexican community about the importance of financial inclusion and to facilitate the connection between responsible financial institutions committed to providing affordable products and services, regardless of a person’s immigration status.
The Federation has collaborated for years with the IME and the network of Mexican consulates. The national expansion of Juntos Avanzamos provides a unique opportunity to bring this collaboration to the next level. Hope you can join us!
