Guandugloma (Nabón) Group's story

The communal bank Guandugloma consists of 8 members who live in the canton of Nabón, a place with a cold climate, surrounded by abundant vegetation and in this place you can breathe the tranquility of the countryside.

Its people are kind, gentle and still maintain the dress, traditions and culture of their people. They work in the fields, raising animals and many, especially the young people, go to the city to work every day in different economic activities.

One of the members of this group is María Dolores. She is 41 years old, married and from this marriage she has 6 children who are 16, 14, 11, 8, 7, and 2 years old. Her first two children are studying at school and three of her children are studying at a little local school. Her husband is a bricklayer. They own the house they live in.

María does the household chores, raises and sells cattle, guinea pigs, pigs, sheep and chickens and she also works in agriculture cultivating their land. The crops are for their household consumption and to sell.

This is the second loan they have made in the communal bank and it will be invested in the purchase of fertilizer for the land, guinea pigs, chickens and pigs. Her goal is to have more animals.

In this group: María Doraliza, Esther Esperanza, Rosa Elena, María Emerita, María Delfina De Jesús, Grima María, Rosa Elena, María Aurora
