Banco Macro received an award for its "Cuentas Sanas" Program

Buenos Aires, December 1, 2016. Banco Macro received an award for its Healthy Accounts (Cuentas Sanas) program at the 13th Edition of the "CSR Awards"a yearly event that acknowledges achievements in Social Responsibility of corporations, NGOs and the media in Argentina.

The event was held on Tuesday November 22 at the auditorium of Universidad Abierta Interamericana (UAI), located at Avenida San Juan 983, City of Buenos Aires, with more than 300 guests. The award was received by Milagro Medrano, Institutional Relations and Customer Service Manager of Banco Macro.
Also known as "The Great Night of Solidarity and Communication" in Argentina, "Distinciones RSC" was created back in 2004 by the initiative of Guillermo Petruccelli and the patronage of Juan Carr, for the purpose of promoting solidarity commitment and the adoption of sustainable habits by society at large.
In the category Corporations the award went to the Healthy Accounts (Cuentas Sanas) program of Banco Macro. The Healthy Accounts web site, launched in 2015, is the first web site in Argentina that provides educational tools and contents on personal economy and bankarization. It is free of charge and offers information, suggestions, tools and resources to the community to assist individuals in their challenges of their economy, throughout all their stages and life stations. From October 2015, the resources of the program are delivered throughout Argentina by means of face-to-face and online workshops.

Cuentas Sanas program is intended for a federal scale: in just one year more than 150 workshops have been held, in 40 cities of the 12 provinces. More than 5,760 individuals have directly attended such workshops, however it is estimated that the indirect impact will reach more than 26,000 personas individuals, due to the multiplying effect of the workshops provided to teachers and heads of households.

Bringing the financial system closer to people is not enough, they must develop knowledge, expertise and skills that will allow them to use the financial system in a safe and beneficial manner", states Milagro Medrano, Institutional Relations Manager of Banco Macro.
Banco Macro thanks the award and the incentive to continue growing alongside its clients, who are the ones who make this award possible.
