Entrada A Chunazana (Nabón) Group's story

The communal bank Entrada a Chunazana consists of seven women who work primarily with farming activities which they have learnt from their parents, and with the help of which they can contribute to the economy of their households while spending time with their children. These women maintain their culture and traditions. They live in the Nabón Canton, a place with a cold climate, surrounded by lush vegetation, they are people with warm hearts who still maintain their typical food culture.

One of the members of this group is Digna, 25, who is married and has two children from this marriage aged four and two. Her first child goes to a small school in the locality. Her husband works as day laborer, they don't own a house of their own so they live with her parents-in-law and share the expenses of the household with them.

Digna works in agriculture, her crops is for the family's own consumption. She also raises cavies, chickens, and cattle whose milk she sells. She will use the loan to buy animal feed and seeds. Her dream is to own a house.

In this group: Virgina Orlanda, Digna Yolanda, Blanca Lucinda, Enma Lucinda, Martha Isabel, María Baleriana, Lidia Jaqueline
