Ecuador

Action lines

SOS Faim has supported family farming in Ecuador for more than 20 years in order to fight rural poverty and food insecurity. We work with a network of savings and credit cooperatives and a local NGO in order to improve the financial and marketing services provided by rural organisations for small family farms.

Our support is concentrated in the rural areas of six provinces (Esmeraldas, Napo, Guayas, Chimborazo, Manabí and Pichincha), which are hard-hit by poverty, but the network of cooperatives is national in scope.
