TUGLIN

Located in the Cotopaxi province, Tuglin is a community where FEDICE is working with a group of 27 families. FEDICE has helped this group to establish a savings and credit union. The main goal of this project is to encourage saving, and help improve socioeconomic status by giving loans for the initial purchase of livestock (cattle and sheep). In addition to not generating enough income to support the cost of living, many people of Tuglin also lack agricultural knowledge. FEDICE intends to help with this issue by giving technical trainings in addition to establishing the savings and credit union. A community savings and credit union could generate cooperation, and eventually establish sustainable operation.
