MiCrédito Promotes Soccer for Granada Youth

By: Humberto Galo

As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility program, MiCrédito donated 15 uniforms to the AC Milan youth soccer team in Granada.

The team is made up of high school students aged 14 to 16 from underprivileged families who are passionate about soccer.

The team currently holds first place in the youth league organized by Colegio Saleisano in the city of Granada. “We play soccer every Sunday and this is the first time that we have a uniform to distinguish ourselves from the other teams,” commented Martín Marceno, a member of the AC Milan team.

According to Verónica Herrera, MiCrédito’s executive director, the institution is supporting these children as part of its commitment to preventing youth from becoming involved in crime and drugs.

“Through our Corporate Social Responsibility program we are trying to help prevent youth from resorting to the use of drugs. We know that these values are based in the family, but MiCrédito wants to be part of instilling good values in our youth, and there is no better way to do this than through sport,” emphasized Herrera.

Granada is one of the nine departments throughout Nicaragua where MiCrédito is present (Managua, León, Chinandega, Masaya, Rivas, Boaco, and Estelí are the others). The institution plans to support causes that contribute to social development as a way to give back to the community, after all of the success that MiCrédito has experienced.
