Various micro and small business associations asked the government of President Pedro Castillo for greater lines of credit and financing to reactivate the sector.
During the conference “Entrepreneurs united by Peru: save Mipymes”, the group made up of associations such as the National Society of Industries (SNI), the Peruvian Association of Bakery and Pastry Entrepreneurs (Aspan), Gamarra Peru and the SME Association Peru specified that the credits of Reactiva Peru and FAE-Mype have not reached many companies at the national level.
“Especially to the independent and self-employed entrepreneurs who represent the vast majority of thriving Peruvians, who with their efforts have generated employment and progress in Peru. It is necessary to strengthen and capitalize the microcredit that serves micro and small businesses, ”he signed in a statement.
They also called for greater state participation in the market. In this line, they demanded that public purchases serve to reactivate thousands of producers of clothing, footwear, wood and metalworking, among others, through the “Expansion of purchases of the MYPErú program”.
In this sense, they asked Congress and the Executive, alike, to stop the crossfire and close agreements to improve the country’s economic situation. To do this, they also needed more “calm” in the market.
“We call on the Congress of the Republic and the Executive to concentrate all their efforts on formulating measures to save the country’s micro and small businesses and generate the jobs that Peruvians demand,” the association said.
