Tarwi producers begin planning inclusive businesses in Peru

Producers of Yunguyo Province in the Puno-Peru region organised themselves for the development of an Inclusive and Sustainable Business Plan in the framework of the project

"Resilient Heritage of the Andes Cañahua and Tarwi" of the Resilient Food Production sector, financed by the Euroclima+ programme.

14 June, Peru - Through participatory consultancies, a useful tool was designed for the beneficiaries to strategically manage, market and finance the production of their plots of land. The producers made the decision to face their future through the formation of the Asociación Agro-productiva Visión Imicate, made up of more than 39 farmers (men and women).

In the process of building the business plan, which has been underway since December 2020, the development of capacities in strategic planning, identification of business opportunities, management of business plans, added value, organisation and other aspects that were highly valued by the Association were determined.

The business plan was designed for the collection, post-harvest, processing, generation of added value, gastronomic processing, marketing and promotion of consumption in the province of Yunguyo of at least 23 tons of Tarwi (Lupinus mutabilis), benefiting more than 100 non-associated producers in the sector (under the principle of a fair and direct price to the producer). During the months of June to October of this year, the Inclusive and Sustainable Business Plan will be implemented through a co-financing scheme between the farmers' resources (in cash and in kind) and the project's subsidy.

The president and leader of the association pledged to work together with the project for the benefit of producers and consumers in the area, in order to ensure the sustainability of the actions designed by Swisscontact.
