Guano has a new market place

In the Pulinguí community, in the San Andrés parish of the Guano canton, the new slaughterhouse was inaugurated, which will allow the trade of animals in better conditions, boosting the local and provincial economy.

Juan Pablo Cruz, Prefect of Chimborazo, stressed the joint work with the cantonal authorities for the execution of works at the province level. “This is an alternative that you have, a slaughterhouse plaza with an administrative area, as an operational one, which has better infrastructure and connectivity with national axes so that they can come from other parishes, cantons and provinces (…) there was the political will to do it, and this dream of women entrepreneurs becomes a reality”, she said. With the contribution of properties from the residents of the community and its surroundings, the construction of a space of approximately 40 thousand square meters was achieved.

Fanny Caiza, a resident of the Pulinguí community, expressed her gratitude for this new work and the unconditional support. “This, which began as a communal undertaking, is now a reality, we are knocking on doors, both in the Prefecture of Chimborazo, and in the Municipal Government of Guano, where we receive the necessary support for the economic boost of the canton and the province (…) before the reality was different, we only had a fair with tables, tingos and sticks, but today, thanks to the management of the authorities with Agrocalidad to have better conditions and an optimal space for commerce”, he highlighted.
