The Arroyo S.E.C.O. Network of Time Banks (ASNTB) is a local exchange system designed to inspire trust and reciprocity. It is a collective working towards empowering the community by facilitating cooperative trade. Time Banking is built on the idea that each of us has unique gifts, talents and resources to share and that everyone’s time is equal. The ASNTB aims to encourage systemic social change and economic equality. We also organize a community loan loan fund for new small and coop business owners.
