In Belisario Quevedo parish of the Latacunga canton, in the province of Cotopaxi, there is an organization of 21 families that has been working with FEDICE since 2019 on animal husbandry projects and family businesses.


For this last project, FEDICE will grant $12,800 reimbursable funds to 16 families and with the organization's own funds, resources will be given to 5 families, that is, for this project there are 21 families, each one will receive $800.

The funds that each family will receive will be for raising domestic animals: cattle, pigs, guinea pigs and businesses: purchase and sale of cattle, store, hairdresser, sewing workshop and fruit and vegetable store, food business and purchase and sale of cars.

Due to the variety of areas, the organization will work as a savings and credit bank to encourage families to carry out different activities.

The purpose of the Fund is to encourage members to save and improve socio- economic conditions through the provision of credits for agriculture, raising domestic animals and commerce.



Currently, the social and economic reality of the residents of many rural areas of the Cotopaxi province is critical, taking into account the low level of income to cover their minimum needs.

The families have been carrying out practices of forming a common fund and re- lending with their credit policies, in this way they have a base of $4,700 to continue with this credit activity.


With the associated work of the 21 families in the execution of this project, the Crecer Juntos (San Miguel) organization of Belisario Quevedo is strengthened organizationally and economically because its partners have demonstrated honesty and responsibility in economic management, allocating credit to productions and businesses.


In addition, FEDICE continues to provide support for the training, monitoring and evaluation of the activities of the savings and credit bank, businesses and production, achieving greater participation of its members in the search for sources of work and the opportunity to continue with FEDICE, which supports with credit and technical assistance.
