Project Description

Alpaca herders in the rural highlands of Ayacucho and Cusco face a low standard of living and have few opportunities to increase income with this type of work. Cooperativa de Producción y Servicios Especiales de los Productores de Camélidos Andinos (COOPECAN) provides technical assistance to improve herds and increase the quality and quantity of wool fiber while providing training in leadership skills to cooperative members. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Peru. COOPECAN’s activities strengthen communities through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.
