TURKISH COOPERATION AND COORDINATION AGENCY helps farmers in Peru.
TIKA implemented another revenue project in South America. The Agency created a cooler warehouse space for floral in Cajamarca in coordination with the Ministry of Agricultural Development and Irrigation of Peru (MIDAGRI) to sustain and solidify the agriculture market in the world and the region.
Five cities were given preference for advancing the floriculture sector inside the purview of the “Floriculture Development Plan 2030,” which was embraced as a state program by the Government of Peru. TIKA constructed a chilly storage space for floral in Junín, one of the priority cities, in 2021. Another cold storage space was built in Cajamarca, some other priority city, within the purview of the development strategy of the Govt of Peru in place to bolster the plan and enable Peruvian farmers to earn a reliable livelihood.
Rómulo Antúnez, Deputy Minister of Agricultural Development and Irrigation of Peru, gave a speech at the official opening special ceremony for the institution and asserted that the project would contribute to enhancing the cut flower sector and rising the income of families who depend on floriculture for their livelihood. Deputy Minister Antúnez thanked TIKA for its help and support for the Floriculture Development Plan, which the structure of the Second Agrarian Reform has accompanied.
Zoila Huamán, President of Cajamarca ECO FLOOR Cooperative, expresses her love: “We want to thank TIKA and Türkiye for their support for flower farmers in Cajamarca. Humans used to suffer massive financial losses as we can not store the flowers we grew. We have been forced to grow lower quantities of flowers. The above facility will facilitate us to grow more roses and generate more money.”
