The organization of women from the community of Jatun Juigua Yacubamba, is made up of 41 families that have been working with FEDICE for 8 years, with projects for animal husbandry and the sale of beef to local markets. The lands of the community are of irregular topography,
suitable for the agricultural production of pastures. The objective of this project is:to technically produce beef cattle, based on the use of physical and human resources available in the community, through the incorporation of improved cattle, guaranteeing greater volume of disease resistant meat production.
The Community provides the pastures for animal feeding and fattening, fencing and structures for cattle care, vaccinations, sanitary treatments, and transportation. FEDICE continues to provide trainings and the transfer of appropriate technologies, analysis of difficulties and solution of existing problems, evaluation of the markets recommendations and planning of activities. Through home visits, community events, and strengthening the self- management capacities of families in the project.
The Jatun Juigua Yacubamba community has met most of its goals as set out in the contract and monitored in person through FEDICE staff. While in the final stages of the FEDICE process, the community has requested FEDICE credit of funding for 2019 for the purchase of 41 bulls that are of higher quality and yield greater quantity of beef to strengthen their output. This evaluation will be carried out through visits, interviews with the beneficiaries, meetings, and increased sales. In all these processes, the families involved in the project will participate.
