Fundación Banco Macro and Fundación Educando launch a new edition of the "Educando en Informática" Program

Libertador General San Martín, Jujuy, July 22, 2016. Fundación Banco Macro and Fundación Educando announce the launching of a new edition of the "Educando en Informática" in the district of Libertador General San Martín. This initiative consists in financial technology and literacy training for senior citizens, pensioners and retirees in the region.

In the frame of the Program 25 workshops will be held, free of charge, with duration of one month and a half each during the months of August and September at Colegio Instituto Técnico Ingeniero Herminio Arrieta. The workshops will be held at a mobile unit equipped with 20 notebooks donated by Banco Macro.
Those interested in registering in the program may enroll from July 25 at Banco Macro’s branch located at Sixto Ovejero 278 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.

From 2011 both foundations promote the incorporation of new technologies, computer and ATM literacy for senior citizens in the Province of Jujuy. Workshops have provided training to more than 4,500 individuals.

The "Educando en Informática" project is conducted as a consequence of the excellent results obtained by the "Aula Móvil" project conducted in 2013 and the training workshops held at the school Jesús Maestro in 2014. Together with the diocese of Jujuy, Fundación Educando and Fundación Banco Macro have been training senior citizens in San Pedro, Perico and La Medieta in the Province of Jujuy.

As in the previous edition of this program, Banco Macro has incorporated a new module on financial education, based on the new portal www.cuentassanas.com.ar, the first personal and family financial education web portal in Argentina that provides an integral education base on personal finance and banking.
Banco Macro promotes this training program in the frame of its corporate responsibility policy. This program intends to foster technology as a tool of development, inclusion and improvement of life quality of individuals and communities in the areas where Banco Macro is present.
