About Peru

Peru is almost three times the size of Morocco with a population of about 30 million people. Peru’s rural-urban divide mirrors divides in poverty, indigenous and ethnic people’s treatment, and women’s rights. The poverty rate in urban locations in Peru is 17 percent compared with 53 percent in rural areas. Women bear the brunt of poverty, especially women who belong to indigenous and ethnic minorities such as Quechua speaking communities. Food insecurity is often a result of poverty. Indigenous women often take on the full responsibility of producing food for their families and represent about 80 percent of their family’s labor force resulting in rampant food insecurity among rural indigenous women and their families.
