Las pequeñas cooperativas rurales: surge un nuevo actor económico
AbstractParadoxically, at the close of the XX century the Ecuadorian financial system ended up weakened, and especially banking, which faces a deep crisis of confidence due to its fragility faced with internal and external shocks, apart from its incompetence and high levels of corruption. In the same scenario we highlight the resurgence of the small rural savings and loan co-operatives as efficient systems of rural finance which manage not only to diversify and widen the financial services available to small producers and the poor rural population, but also experience sustained growth in almost all financial indicators; showing themselves to be valid references in times of crisis and for the development of rural financial markets.
