Facilitating Microleasing in Peru For small rural producers of quinoa and dairy products

The pro­ject has the ob­jec­tive to pre­pare and test Mi­croleas­ing in Peru´s mi­cro­fi­nance sys­tem in order to grant ac­cess to pro­duc­tive as­sets to small rural pro­duc­ers. As the first pilot mi­croleas­ing ini­tia­tive in Peru, the pro­ject will pro­vide replic­a­ble pro­fes­sional con­di­tions in the tar­geted mi­cro­fi­nance in­sti­tu­tions (Saving and Credit Cooperatives - SAC­COs) to fos­ter a scaled up in­ter­ven­tion in a next phase through its Na­tional Fed­er­a­tion of Saving and Credit Cooperatives of Peru (FE­NACREP).

The pilot will in­crease the ac­cess of small rural pro­duc­ers of the quinoa and dairy products value chain to as­sets and tools that will in­crease their pro­duc­tiv­ity. After a suc­cess­ful pilot it is ex­pected that FE­NACREP will, with sup­port of Swiss­con­tact, ex­pand the pro­ject to other agri­cul­tural sec­tors and re­gions in Peru.

Results

The pilot aims to reach 400 quinoa farm­ers and 750 dairy prod­ucts pro­duc­ers that will par­tic­i­pate in Fi­nan­cial Work­shops and at least 20% of them will ac­quire pro­duc­tive as­sets through mi­croleas­ing (80 and 150 clients re­spec­tively).

After a proper knowl­edge trans­fer, it is ex­pected that FE­NACREP will scale up the prod­uct to the other three SAC­COS in Puno, where it). is es­ti­mated that in a three year pe­riod the prod­uct will reach at least the 7% of the total po­ten­tial mar­ket (4,200 clients).
