According to Glas, the National Finance Corporation channeled $10 million USD in loans for boosting the production in Manabi.

The public and the private sector must join effort for reconstructing the affected areas, he said.

Meanwhile, another Colombian ship will leave for Ecuador with humanitarian aid for the victims of the devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake, the newspaper El Tiempo said.

The boat will transport 11 tons of food, blankets, medicines and water, the Commander of the Armed Forces, General Juan Pablo Rodriguez said.

The Colombian Government has also sent several shipments with food, tents and cleaning products by air and by land, two of them delivered by President Juan Manuel Santos himself during his visit to areas struck by the quake.
