In the context of the strong work we have been carrying out to achieve the development of families in El Soberbio, Misiones, we have signed an important agreement with the Municipality. On this occasion, there are four key points to highlight that make a difference:
• We commit, together, to generate more than 800 annual trade certifications with the concrete possibility of secure employment, emphasizing the job pool from the municipality, local chambers, and regional companies.
• The human resource is professionalized and empowered to achieve the established objectives.
• The Municipality provides us with a piece of land on loan for the construction of a groundbreaking trade center, offering opportunities to the entire population of El Soberbio and its neighboring villages.
• Professional courses will be offered, aimed at keeping up with the technological future we are facing, and a research and development department for the industry sector will be established.
During the signing of the agreement, we were joined by Roque Soboczinski, the Mayor of El Soberbio, Ricardo Leiva, the Vice Mayor, and the council members. Representing Pequeños Pasos were Matías Ronconi and Darío Cortese, President and Vice President of Pequeños Pasos, and Fernando Bilbao, Director of Logistics and New Ventures for the NGO.
We also had the important presence of Deputy Sonia Rojas, with whom we are thinking and planning the next steps to make this venture a model for the entire country.
We appreciate Banco Macro, Diego Rabolini, and Omar for their consistent support at every step we take.
