Nilda, age 41, lives in Primavera de Duran (the urban perimeter was originally irregular with various hills, creeks, and lakes that are still there even though they appear as the remains of an ecology in dissolution).
To support her household Nilda had to travel to Spain. She was looking for opportunities that she did not have in her country. She had to work in Spain for ten years. This was in order for her to have the same business, a lumberyard, as her father.
When she returned to Ecuador she bought wood for her business. With her father’s guidance she got good results. She now works Monday through Saturday buying and selling wood. She has all types of wood; cane, planks, and Guayacan, etc.
With the loan she will buy planks and cane for her lumberyard. In the future she wants to have another lumberyard in order to expand.
