Escuinapa, Sinaloa.- At least four years is the estimated time it could take Escuinapa to recover from the onslaught of Willa , revealed Mayor Emmett Soto Grave.
The mayor announced that a rescue is prepared in the productive sector for which he has appealed to President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
“There were affected about 13 thousand 600 hectares of mango and 8 thousand of horticulture, also to the aquaculture and fishing sector. Some gardens are in the process of being cleaned, but the damage is catastrophic for the municipality, both in employment and in the productive sector in the future, “he said.
The rescue proposal proposed by the municipality to the federal government consists of granting soft credits and a Temporary Employment program, in addition to resources applied from the Fonden.
We also think about the rescue of the infrastructure because there was a lot of damage from the different plots and lots, so that they can be productive as soon as possible, he said.
The farmers do not ask for everything, they ask that they be supported with credits.
He maintained that the escuinapenses have been optimistic, including the producers, because in spite of the affectations by the natural phenomenon , they have been part of the volunteering to support about 8 thousand migrants who have passed in the middle of the caravans.
The town lost a lot, but it does not lose its solidarity. The last group was 70. We have not, but we will continue to support, he said.
