The Neighborhood Lending Program begins. Based on the initiative of some neighbors and on the premise that sharing is better than buying, this program offers all subscribing neighbors tools and home appliances on loan for nine days. The Neighborhood Lending Program is open three days a week, and it is a free project based on trust and solidarity among neighbors. The project is also open to receive tools, home appliances, and other objects in working condition, donated by neighbors and local businesses.
Since June 2017, when the Neighborhood Lending Program began, one hundred and twenty neighbors have requested and returned more than five hundred new or used tools, appliances, and objects.
