Treasury Bank authorities delivered 161 Plus debit cards (TDP) to entrepreneurs from the municipalities Paz Castillo and Rafael Urdaneta, Valles del Tuy subregion of Miranda state, within the framework of the Entrepreneur Movement of the Bicentennial Congress of the Peoples.
From the Rey David meeting room in Cúa, Ricardo Moreno, Secretary of Entrepreneurship of the Government of Miranda, pointed out that the action is part of the Plan of Attention to Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), decreed by the National Executive.
He specified that the beneficiaries have complied with the formalization of their companies in the Integrated National Service of Customs and Tax Administration (Seniat) and in the Autonomous Service of Records and Notaries (Saren). In addition, they are prepared in the National Congress of Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
"The Plus debit card allows entrepreneurs to make exact payments in foreign currency, without having to complete money to get a change," Moreno explained.
Maury Avilés, Business Manager of Banco del Tesoro, revealed that each entrepreneur carried out procedures to open their bank account and finally received a debit card in bolivars and another card called Plus, for foreign currencies such as the dollar. "This is the beginning for entrepreneurs who are heading towards a better destination with this type of action," he said.
In the Rafael Urdaneta municipality, the authorities delivered the debit plus cards to 50 entrepreneurs, in order to boost job growth and the economy of the Cueña population.
Mayor Gabriela Simoza added that the municipal government, through the Ministry of Productive Economy, will hold entrepreneurship fairs during the weeks of flexibility, with the aim of offering alternatives to the population that seeks to advance in economic matters.
In the same context, Erik Lovera Varguilla, mayor of Paz Castillo, reported that the idea is to create facilities for entrepreneurs for digital payments in bolivars and international currency; in addition to encouraging these new entrepreneurs to innovate their products, goods and services.
In Plaza Bolívar in Santa Lucía del Tuy, 37 women and 24 men received the debit plus cards. The Municipal Productive Economy Secretariat of the Paz Castillo Mayor's Office also granted 61 licenses for economic activities.
While the lawyers of the Seventh Mercantile Registry based in Caracas handed over the registration titles to 33 women and nine men who undertook economic activities in the town.
Likewise, Banco del Tesoro officials provided information and advice on all the products and services offered by the financial institution to cardholders.
"From the Secretariat of Entrepreneurship and Innovation we are adding these people with new business ideas, so that they support the economic development process of the Paz Castillo municipality and the Miranda state," added Lovera.
