Facts about Ecuador
Although Ecuador is an oil-producing nation, it has long been a difficult environment for jobs as 23 percent of the population lives below the national poverty line. The country has made significant strides in expanding its middle class, but endemic poverty in rural and indigenous communities means that many Ecuadorans depend upon informal businesses as their sole means of support.
Banco FINCA is a formal regulated financial institution and is recognized as one of the most efficient microfinance institutions in Latin America. With 9 branches throughout Ecuador, Banco FINCA offers Village Banking, individual and small group loans, savings programs for adults and children as well as money transfers services and insurance.
