WCCN currently partners with more micro-finance institutions in Peru than any other nation, and for good reason. Peru has a sophisticated microfinance sector with principled regulators and laws that are favorable to the Peruvian in need. In spite of this, the need is great. With La Roya causing a national emergency coffee blight that destroyed crops of countless farmers, a true recovery can only be possible with leadership like that exhibited by WCCN and our partners in the country.

OUR PARTNERS IN PERU

PACIFICO

Partner Since 2014

Founded in 1970 by descendants of Japanese immigrants, over 90% of initial members of the cooperative were of Japanese ancestry, but the composition of the membership has changed over time. The cooperative reaches poorer segments of the population, especially those in rural areas, by way of their association with EDPYMEs, cooperatives, and NGOs. With a speciality of providing small loans to rural groups of borrowers, Cooperativa de Ahorro y Crédito Pacífico (PACIFICO) provides 23,000 Peruvians with loans that average $404 each. 78 % of their clients are women.
