Portland, OR (PRWEB) September 27, 2012
The Consulate of Mexico in Portland and ClearPoint announce that today they formalized, at the Consulate’s location, the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding to promote financial education to the Mexican community in the state of Oregon and southwest Washington. ClearPoint will offer workshops in Spanish on counseling for credit management, monthly income and housing. These services, at no cost to consumers, will assist them to make the right decisions to manage their own income in a more efficient way, and how to develop a financial plan for a better future.
"We hope that through this collaboration, the Mexican community in Oregon and southwest Washington, benefits from the support offered by ClearPoint," said the Consul of Mexico in Portland, Minister Enrique Antonio Romero-Cuevas.
Recently, ClearPoint has signed Memoranda with the General Consulates of Mexico in Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego, Austin, and the Consulates in Fresno, Seattle and Santa Ana.
“Thanks to the commitment and support of the Mexican Consulate, ClearPoint is able to expand the reach of our counseling and financial education to members of the Mexican community in the Pacific Northwest Region”, said ClearPoint’s Senior Vice President & Chief Education Officer, Martha Lucey.
