In order to support mothers, fathers and guardians in vulnerability, and so that they can go to their jobs or school with the confidence that their children will be in a safe place, The Zapopan City Council allocated a bag of 15 million pesos to provide financial support for the payment of childcare in the municipality.
This is the Mi Estancia Zapopan program, through which support of 1,200 pesos per month will be provided for each child up to 11 years of age, and 1,500 pesos per child with a disability, which will be granted on a quarterly basis.
“I cannot see a woman or a man with a son or a daughter and stop working. That is why in Zapopan we are giving it all the desire; The budget was doubled to 15 million pesos, but it is not enough, because in the end, the mothers, the women, are the generators of the economy. That is why we are betting on all of you, because we know that you are the ones that are going to get us ahead”, said the mayor of Zapopan, Juan José Frangie, during the presentation of these supports, carried out in the Parque de las Estrellas in the Colony Arcos de Zapopan.
financial support will benefit families indirectly by paying childcare subsidy and it should be used as a complement to the monthly payment for the child care service, explained the director of Social Programs of Zapopan, Miguel Ángel Ixtláhuac.
“My Estancia Zapopan can be accessed by people who work and receive a salary of no more than 12,000 pesos, only by presenting their payroll stub. Entrepreneurs presenting any municipal license, any permit for flea markets and commerce in open spaces, any market permit or even if they are part of the register of agricultural producers of the municipality, ”he explained.

“Today we live in a situation in which the salary of a single father is not enough to cover the expenses and needs of the house, that is when we mothers have to go out and look for a job, but what happens when we are single mothers? ? We have to go out and also look for a good nursery in which our children are very well cared for, ”said Mrs. María Luisa Gálvez Jiménez, representing the beneficiary mothers and fathers.
