International Loans: The Piña Project
PINEAPPLES IN ECUADOR
Farmers from Village 235, a small community located three hours north of Quito, recieved a loan to buy pineapple seeds in January 2013. As with any agricultural venture, the progress of the pineapples vary greatly depending on the weather, land, and farmers themselves. Some, like Arturo Mina, have planted over 300 pineapples, while others are still having trouble securing seeds.
