46% of companies in Sinaloa are informal: Ministry of Economy


Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- 80 percent of the Sinaloa economy is generated through Mipymes, but there is still a significant number of people who remain in the informal sector and still cannot see the benefits of being a company that generates profits and jobs This was reported by the Secretary of Economy in Sinaloa, Javier Gaxiola Coppel.

The state official emphasized that his agency is working on being able to make informal companies migrate to formality, this through different self-employment programs such as Equipa Sinaloa, and thus be able to have access to credits that allow it to grow as a company, despite of the large number of businesses that start without paying any tax and evading other responsibilities.

“All the programs we do go hand in hand with a promotion of formality, what happens? You start with your small business, we guide you to formality so that you can later access credits, that way grow and more jobs and profits, that’s what we do; We are better than the country, informality in the country is at 56 percent, here we are at 49 percent, “she detailed.
