" Seeking to guarantee human dignity over any personal interest is the engine that guides my daily decisions. I am sure that by participating in this Millennium Fellowship, I will be able to continue working to bring education, human rights and female empowerment closer, complying with the goals of the SDGs, to my community, country and the world itself.

Millennium Fellowship Project: FINPERMEX

In Finpermex we believe in a more financial inclusion world with a society with less inequality where the people can have a better quality of life an a better future, that is why we create strategic alliances that allow us to connect people passionate about finances with those that are starting their financial journey and want the information and skills to make good decisions but cannot access quality information in an easy way, we connect them through workshops, conferences, and challenges, providing quality education on personal finance and the opportunity to create together a more financial inclusive world.
