(Spanish with English subtitles)
Gatazo Zambrano is a rural community of 2,000 inhabitants, most of whom depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. The farmers have self-organized, with a community-owned irrigation system, a storage center and export links. For years, ECLOF has been serving farmers here in Chimborazo province with small loans and training. Loans are used to buy agricultural inputs, and in training sessions the farmers learn about environmentally friendly practices, financial management and the power of self-organization. This film testifies to the farmers’ hard work and motivation.
