Help for needy student
Employees in the JN Small Business Loans (JNSBL) Region Two team have demonstrated their own corporate social responsibility by assisting a Jose Marti High School student with her back-to-school expenses for the past two years. Recently, they went one step further, and with the assistance of members of the JNSBL management team, joined forces to facilitate the student's fees to enter the sixth form.
The team members responded by providing shoes and lunch money; and one staff member made the uniform for the high-school student last year, and this year and other persons helped with other school items that the student needs.
When she decided to go on to sixth form, an appeal was made to the general manager of JNSBL to assist with the fees. Philip Bernard, general manager, agreed.
