This dynamic takes place after the president of the Council of Ministers, Mirtha Vásquez, went to the Congress of the Republic to ask for a vote of confidence in her cabinet and mentioned important notices, including the return to face-to-face classes in March of 2022 and the direct delivery of a bonus of 70 soles per month for workers with salaries of up to 2,000 soles concentrated in micro and small companies (mypes) and in the sectors most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, such as commerce and services.
In addition, during the presentation, Mirtha Vásquez assured that the Government plans to grant a second Yanapay bond of 350 soles, if the prices of the basic basket continue to rise, this in line with the recovery of domestic demand. Likewise, the authority announced before Congress that the intervention of the Pension 65 Program will be expanded to serve more elderly people living in poverty.
This means that, through the bimonthly S / 250 subsidy, the proposal seeks to reach 717,539 older adults by 2026 in order to alleviate the terrible situation of extreme poverty that they are experiencing.
