Cuyes Dorados Group's story

The “Cuyes Dorados” (Golden Guinea Pigs) mutually supportive group is a group of enterprising people seeking to get ahead and improve their families’ quality of life.

The group president is Gloria, a 54-year-old woman living in the city of Latacunga. She has a 20-year-old son. Gloria lives with her son and husband and Gloria defines herself as a cheerful, honest, respectful and very hardworking woman. Some time ago she decided to start a business to help her husband economically and she decided to raise animals to sell. It had good results and her entire family’s quality of life has improved.

The loan she’s asking FODEMI for is to buy baby guinea pigs to raise for subsequent sale. She will also invest in setting up the cages where she’ll raise them. Gloria is convinced about investing money in her business because she’s doing better every time and she’s earning higher income.

Gloria wants to reach her dream of having a large guinea pig nursery to become a micro businesswoman supplying her city’s markets and with this be able to help with her son’s education.

In this group: Gloria , Luis , Elva
