(3BL Media) August 21, 2012 - Banorte-Ixe is convinced that all people should have access to financial literacy regardless of age, gender, physical condition, social or economic status. To put this ideal to action, Banorte-Ixe served as host of the workshop “Aquí Estoy” ("Here I am") at a summer camp organized by the Institution “Unidos Somos Iguales”. Banorte-Ixe employees provided a fun and lively lesson on personal finance, sharing with an audience, made up mainly of young people and adults with mobility and/or intellectual disabilities, the importance of financial savings and the ease with which we can adopt this practice as a habit.

From July 24th to 26th, eleven trained volunteers from the Banorte-Ixe family shared these lessons with more than 345 attendees on how financial saving is an excellent way to get closer to meeting the goals we set. Similarly, and consistent with the values ​​of our institution, the workshop also transmitted the importance of saving natural resources and of responsible consumption.

In this way, the people of Banorte-Ixe are helping to build a more equitable country, leaving their mark on the workshop participants, who gave in return a grateful smile. The following are two volunteer testimonials:

"Having participated in the summer camp was an experience that made me feel proud to belong to the Banorte-Ixe family, because I realized that we are part of a company that not only cares about having an economic benefit, but that also supports social programs and the environment. I firmly believe that actions like this have a positive impact on the workplace, on the lives of workers and strengthen the link between business, workers and their community". Emmanuel Soto - Systems Development

"We are proud to represent Banorte and especially to be invited to contribute and participate even in a small way to society. It was an unforgettable experience - enriching for the heart and soul. It completely transforms your life; nothing compares to be with human beings who without asking anything in return will show their ability to give love in abundance. A great work of the Corporate Responsibility Department". Nora Tijerina – Asset Recovery

The road ahead is long, but we will continue to move forward, each step a new opportunity to help others, convinced of the power of financial literacy. To Make Mexico Stronger.
