PROJECT FOR STRENGTHENING THE PRODUCTION OF DOMESTIC ANIMALS AND BUSINESS WITH THE FAMILIES OF THE SAN JOSÉ DEL TROJE ALTO ENTREPRENEURS GROUP

 

  1. SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT  

El Troje Alto is a sector of Cotopilaló, it belongs to the Toacaso parish in Latacunga, Cotopaxi province. In this area a group of 20 families was formed who wish to work with FEDICE.

The name of San José is in honor and memory of Mr. José Iza who was a very active character and collaborator with the development and progress of the Planchaloma and Cotopilalo communities.

The Group of 20 families and the FEDICE hold a face-to-face meeting in which we analyze a project proposal with them.

They request a reimbursable fund of $ 10,000 for the production of dairy cattle, sheep, guinea pigs and a store business.

2. PROBLEM

COVID 19 is one of the most worrying problems at this time, but taking the necessary biosecurity measures we will hold the necessary meetings for the development, installation, monitoring and evaluation of the project.

The difficult economic situation, the lack of secure and permanent employment that families are going through makes them present this alternative in the production of dairy cattle, sheep, guinea pigs and a store business.
