Financial sources have reported a downturn in the supply of foreign exchange through the Transaction System for Foreign Currency Denominated Securities (Sitme) due to insufficient bonds. The operations recorded on Monday by the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) totaled USD 18.79 million in debt bonds, the lowest figure since December 31, 2010, when USD 18.26 million were negotiated. 

The amount actually ranks among the ten lowest transactions in the 596 days of operations so far through Sitme, a system that has been running since June 9, 2010.

Think tank Econanalítica Director Asdrúbal Oliveros recently commented that the bond stock would be sufficient until late November. Consequently, a new issue of debt bonds by the Venezuelan State would be needed to boost foreign exchange supply through Sitme.

In the case of the largest banks, bonds sales declined from more than USD 3 million per each banking institution by the end of September to USD 2.2 million were registered by the end of October.

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
