On June 12, Jesus Obrero Cooperativa, an Inclusiv/Juntos Avanzamos credit union and CDFI in Puerto Rico met with Hon.

"...In addition, these teams will serve as a protective measure for officials and volunteers who will work on the three food deliveries to the community scheduled for Monday, June 15, 2020. Food deliveries will be made from 9:00 am on Fernández Juncos Avenue corner Calle del Parque, in front of Mercantil Plaza and in San Mateo de Crab Parish in San Jorge Street in Santurce."
"...we have distinguished ourselves in financially assisting a large immigrant community that shares our desires, dreams and illusions as a society. This work with the immigrant community was recognized in the designation Together We Advanced that the institution obtained last year, becoming the first Savings and Credit Cooperative on the Island to have this honorable distinction."
Cooperativa Jesús Obrero is the first Juntos Avanzamos credit union in Puerto Rico, and is committed to serving and empowering immigrant communities.
