The beautiful country of Ecuador has it all: the ocean, the mountains, and the Amazon. With such a biodiverse country comes lots of possibilities. The country takes advantage of its landscape which is why the agricultural sector employs the second largest group of people behind oil. Fishing is another main industry in Ecuador. Of the nearly 900,000 businesses in Ecuador, about 90% of them are microenterprises, making up 60% of all jobs in Ecuador. Therefore it is necessary to support these small businesses to ensure the economy of Ecuador continues to grow. Indigenous people make up 6.3% of the population and they often face difficulties. For example, due to the effects of the coronavirus more than 20% of the population lives under the poverty line, but this number reaches upward of 65% among indigenous populations. This is why WCCN works with partners to support low-income, vulnerable populations.
