Banco Nacin launches credits for university teachers to access notebooks
The National Bank (BNA) and the Ministry of Education relaunched a credit line of up to $ 150,000 so that 10,000 university teachers from public and private establishments can access the purchase of computers for a period of 36 months and at a rate of 12% annual nominal.
For this credit line, the BNA will allocate $ 2,670 million, while Education will make a contribution of $ 70 million for the fee subsidy and the supplier companies will contribute 20% of the value of the equipment.
The objective of expanding this second stage of the credit line for the purchase of computers is to increase the scope of technological tools for all educational sectors.
“The objective of the loans is to provide teachers with access to an essential tool in this context, strengthening a trend with a view to the future and is, in addition, compliance with what was agreed within the joint negotiation with the university unions, where we agreed to develop this line, “said the Minister of Education, Nicolás Trotta
For his part, the president of Banco Nación, Eduardo Hecker, assured that it is a “very important” line of credit, since teachers “constitute a fundamental link for the education of young people and for the future of the Argentina”.
“It also represents greater inclusion for teachers of all educational levels, who took on the great challenge of continuing and adapting teaching and curricula in this context of a pandemic,” Hecker added.
The initiative arose after the success of the first stage of the PC Teaching program, through which 25,000 teachers and professors at the Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary level were able to access the purchase of a computer via very accessible credits.
Credit management will be carried out through the Banco Nación website and is available from today.
