Gullanpugro (Nabón) Group's story

The communal bank Gullanpugro is made up of 8 members who live in the area of Gullanpugro in the canton of Nabon. This is a place with cold weather. It has many places to enjoy nature. Its cantonal center transports us to the past. Its people maintain the culture and traditions of their ancestors, and most charming is that they continue to dress as in the past. They work in livestock and agriculture.

One of the members of this group is Lidia. She is taking a second loan with the communal bank Gullanpugro. She is 38 years old, married and has 5 children who are 18, 15, 13, 14 and 2 years old. Her first son studies at school some distance away. She works and financially supports her three sons to continue studying at a local school.

Her husband works as a day laborer. She lives in her own home. Lidia does the daily household chores but she is always in search to improve the financial situation by engaging in raising and selling guinea pigs, chickens, cattle and pigs. She also works in agriculture and she sells her crops in the city of Cuenca.

She will use her loan to invest in the purchase of seed, fertilizer and feed for the animals.

Her goal is to have nurseries on her land.

In this group: Lidia María, Blanca Georgina, Maritza Yolanda, Rosa Otilia, Luisa Esperanza, Bertha Judith, María Angelita, María Carmen
