About 8 million peoplein Peru remain poor, with poverty being the direst among people in the rural areas. This is almost a third of the country’s population. Studies have shown that women remain to be the most affected by poverty. Most rural women are poor or extremely poor, even as they play a central role in the subsistence economy. Women work in agriculture, tend livestock and engage in income-generating activities, representing as much as 80 per cent of a family’s labor force. Through these productive activities – along with traditional household tasks and childcare – women make it possible for their husbands to migrate in search of temporary work.
