This book shares the experience of the Casa Campesina Cayambe Microcredit Program, developed in 95 indigenous communities in the cantons of Cayambe and Pedro Moncayo. Beyond gathering the praxis of the Program, the social actor and the human development generated around this process by the Salesian Project Casa Campesina Cayambe and the support of the Spanish NGO Ayuda en Acción are highlighted. The process of organized participation of the population, as a co-responsible actor in the management, has been and is undoubtedly the basis for the development of a microcredit program, accompanied by principles and values such as solidarity, honesty and transparency. These values have strengthened and opened opportunities in a sustained manner, in various productive initiatives of participatory communities. The execution of the proposal of the Microcredit Program, as a dynamizing center for the growth of the peasant economy, is a visible experience of a responsible management of credit from the community organization, one hundred percent at the service of people and not of capital.
