Ecuador employment, earnings and jobs are subjects that bring me frequently asked questions.
The truth is if you move to Ecuador from the US, Canada, ANZ, or Europe employment in Ecuador will be hard.
Several of our readers have obtained posts as teachers at universities. One painter is doing well, but overall there is high Ecuador unemployment. You will compete with hard working, enthusiastic, low paid labor.
However just because employment is not easy does not mean there are not many ways to earn income in Ecuador. Ecuador exports is one.
This is why we have developed an Ecuador import export course that helps readers learn how to earn income anywhere through Ecuador exports.
There are so many different types of products that are exportable from Ecuador. Take for example flowers.
Here are roses I imported from Ecuador.
Ecuador is a gardener’s delight! The continual full sun, the rich earth and abundant rainfall means that every day is the growing season. Everything grows year round. There are many types of Ecuador flowers that are exported.
The wonderful thing about Ecuador is that everything grows here. You often see tropical plants and flowers growing right next to flowers you would normally expect only up north. This is one reason why Ecuador exports are so good.
Flowers grow in the products that many of our delegates export as well.
Here you see them in hand sewn embroidery from the village of Zuleta. In this Andean community near us hand embroidery has been an important form of artistic expression and adornment for centuries. Andean cultures have long boasted textile, far surpassing those of Europe. The weavers of the Andes could produce material with as many as five hundred two-ply woolen wefts per inch compared to a hundred in Europe.
The women of Zuleta are renowned for unique hand embroidered designs and colors. Their styles are so unique they have become a form of cultural identification.
Here the world of master carver Marco Lopez incorporates the flower.
Flowers are popular in Otavalan sweaters as well.
Plus the ladies of Intag make flowers from plant fiber.
Our next import export course will look at flowers as well as leather, wood, textiles, crafts, jewelery and much more.
