2. BENEFICIARIES: 35 families



In the community of Jatun Juigua Yacubamba is the Yanacocha sector, where there is an organization of 35 women who want to work on productive projects with the FEDICE.


They know about the work of FEDICE through relatives and through the organizations that work with FEDICE in the same community of Jatun Juigua Yacubamba.


The families meet, form a directive and submit a letter to FEDICE. It is approved for the technician to visit the community and hold a meeting in which we made known the policies of the Foundation and our institutional work. Families decide to work with credits under FEDICE policies.


The group of 35 families requests a loan of $10,500 to produce beef cattle. Each family will receive $300.00 for the purchase of the animals.



They have beef cattle without greater technical knowledge of management, breeding on deficient pastures and low genetic quality makes them produce animals with little production and over a longer period of time. Better results are expected in terms of animal quality, in good pastures with better productive and sanitary management with the support of the FEDICE foundation.
