" Currently, in the world some countries have a very low rate of people with a personal finances education, affecting no only to them but also affecting the economy of theirs country, that's why I want to help the people to care about finances because I strongly believe that finance is an important tool to improve the quality of life of a person and make an impact in the economy.

Millennium Fellowship Project: FINPERMEX
In the FINPERMEX project, we connect passionate in finance people with those that are starting their finance journey and needs the right information to make good financial decisions but also have the power to generate ideas that could help those less privileged in Mexico by creating a finance culture .
We are going to create activities and a national challenge that incentive the personal finance education, we want to impact in this first semester more than four hundred students, that we believe are going to impact others through the implementation of the ideas they generate in the challenge.
We believe that if more people realize the importance of finances in their life, these will help others to seek a better personal finance education. With the time we want this idea to impact not only Mexico but also to those other countries that need a better personal finance education.
