Beneficiaries: 2.100 people

Starting date: Feb.2009

Ending date: Aug.2010


Profitability improvement of small agricultural-livestock producers from Santa Clara Country House, Pitipo, Lambayeque Department (2009-2010)

In this region of Peru a population composed of families who have migrated from other regions in search of better opportunities to cope with their situation of poverty can be found. Its main economic activity is agriculture, followed by livestock, but the support they have is very limited, and the central problem is the lack of capacity of small farmers, poor promotion of alternative crops and the situation in which traditional crops are subject to low levels of productivity and markets that do not ensure stable prices.


In this context, Oikos, in partnership with the Spanish Red Cross, is developing the capacity and skills of workers in the areas of production, assembly and selection of farming products oriented to the local, regional and export market.


With the aim to contribute to improving the quality of life of families of small producers / agriculture and livestock communities of Rio de la Leche, it is intended to promote an increased agricultural profitability through strengthening joint strategy to market through Agricultural and Livestock Association (AAG – portuguese acronym).
