“One of the objectives of the law is to implement credits for all those sectors that have access difficulties and through the experience of microcredits, around the reactivation policies implemented by the province, we were able to note that they the requests they contained. from people who have difficulties accessing credit and especially women. More than 55% of the applicants were women. Among the objectives is a gender perspective at the new lines of credit. That is something new and it is important to draw attention to it,” said Cali.

The State must implement tools for those who need it most and generate equality. On the other hand, the new entity will continue to regulate and implement official games of chance. But an article will also come into force which assumes that measures could be taken to promote responsible gambling. Although strong actions are already being taken to make the game a pastime, and not a pathological one, we will work around that problem,” said the official.
