Employees of Jobar Companies

 

 

Proyecto empresas Jobar
 

With the support of the Levi Strauss Foundation, Appleseed Mexico and Fundación E run this project jointly.  Its objective is to offer Jobar employees financial education emphasising savings as the principal way to improve their income.

We currently reach 200 people through these courses on subjects such as strengthening your finances, promoting a culture of saving and an enterprising attitude. We guide the participants towards savings as a means to reach their goals and improve their quality of life: by using their savings to find opportunities for additional family income, to ensure a better future for their children through education and to take advantage of their savings to improve their homes.

At the end of the course, each employee opens a bank account and makes monthly deposits of $200 pesos.  After one year of saving, Fundación Levi Strauss duplicates the balance which must be spent or invested on the goal selected by the employee at the beginning of the course (home improvement, education or a small business).
