Rafael Mendoza Mendoza, Director General of Social Development, reported this program will benefit families of migrants so that they can have a business and income.
"Ninety-seven families in different colonies of the municipality of Tonalá, colonies like Agua Blanca, Puente Grande, Coyula, El Vado, which were creditors of support, all with different monetary amounts, since the areas of marketing are different," said the head of Economic Development. For its part the municipal President of Tonalá, Jorge Arana Arana, said they will be successful with the support of the Federal Government and State benefits for the families in Tonalá.
"Tonalá Municipal Government is committed to helping people; we hope that the fruit is businesses that grow large with this financial support. This money has to be invested in a proper way. This is the objective of the Federal Government, headed by President Enrique Peña Nieto and the goal of the State Government headed by Emilio González Márquez and also the Government headed by your mayor", said the Mayor.
The group was organized by Juan Pablo Mares Bustos, director of Social Care of the Ministry of Human Development of the Government of the State; Carlos Hinojosa Magallón, Regional Coordinator of the Metropolitan Area of the Program Support Fund to Migrants; Epiphany Rios Fierros, Director of Development Programs of the Municipality of Tonalá; the Secretary General of the City, Edgar Oswaldo Bañales Orozco; Alderman Fernando Núñez Bautista, who chairs the Building Commission for Social Development, and Alderman Gabriel Antonio Trujillo Ocampo. http://www.oem.com.mx/lavozdelafrontera/notas/n2836873.htm
