Paccha (Nabón) Group's story

The loan team Paccha is made up of five female and one male member who all live in the canton of Nabon, a place blessed with extraordinary vegetation, a cold climate, and beautiful landscapes. The people are friendly, kind, and traditional, and they still jealously guard the culture and traditions that their parents taught them, farming and raising animals being the primary source of income in the region.

One of the group members is Rosa. This is her second loan with Paccha. Rosa is 33 years old and married, and she and her husband have six children. Their oldest boy is married and lives independently, their second son is in high school, and the three younger children study in a small village school. The youngest stays at home as he is still very little. Her husband works as a bricklayer and they own their own home.

Rosa works primarily in the field, a family tradition, and this lets her support the household economy while at the same time being at home and caring for the family. She works the land and raises animals. The money from her previous loan was invested in the purchase of animals, seeds, and feed. She is cycling the loan to buy pigs, chickens, and animal feeds so she can continue to grow in this line of work and improve her household's income. She likes her loan team because at each meeting, she is able to chat with her friends about various things and build the bond among them.

In this group: Carmita Eulalia, Ayda Esperanza, Fabian Vinicio, Julia Encarnación, María Elvira, Rosa Elena
