Imbaya's Group's story

"Imaya's Group" is a communal bank that includes 4 people who are responsible in their work. The president of this group is the girl dressed in blue lycra leggings. Her name is Silvana. She is president because she is a disciplined person with a strong character, and she likes to get ahead. Silvana lives with her parents and her two children in Imbaya, which is 15 minutes from Ibarra in the province of Imbabura.

Silvana works alone raising chickens to fatten and later sell. This business helps her financially to support her household, because this is the only income that she has. For this reason, she needs to constantly buy animals to raise so that she has work. She is taking her first loan with Fodemi, and her goal is to buy chickens to raise and fatten. This will help her to continue with her business, so that she can continue to make sales.

Silvana dreams of becoming a wholesale distributor of chickens.

In this group: Silvana Patricia, Gloria Isabel, Edgar Alberto, Alexandra Patricia
