With the delegation of powers delivered from the Provincial Government of Chimborazo to the Municipal GAD of Penipe, 104 pigs (female and male) were delivered for breeding and reproduction, to 52 heads of household of the La Libertad community of the San Antonio de Bayushig parish.

The objective is to strengthen the economic activity in their families, “we avoid the migration of families, because behind you, there are children, parents or grandparents who depend on your income. (…) despite the budget reduction and health difficulties of the pandemic; We have provided the facilities to continue with these projects, which promote nuclear production and economy,” said Juan Pablo Cruz, Prefect of Chimborazo.

In addition, the provincial institution will make the agroveterinary mobile clinic available to the canton to carry out the health monitoring of livestock, vitaminization and deworming of their animals, free of charge.

For her part, Lourdes Mancero, mayor of Penipe, stressed that it has been a strength to be able to unite all levels of government to carry out works together. “The unification of resources gives better results, thanks to the delegation of powers that have been given to us (…) this will become a seed capital that will support its economy; this project must be harnessed and exploited,” she explained.

The delivery of this productive project contributes to the revitalization of the economy in the area. “It has been a constant struggle of months of work, but we are sure that working together with the authorities will leave better results. (…) thanks to the support of the agroveterinary clinic that will attend to our little animals”, affirmed Carlos Lliguay, president of the parish.
