About Peru:

Today, Peru’s annual per capita income is declining; 52 percent of the population is underemployed and 8 percent are unemployed. Peru has a highly unequal income distribution and endemic poverty with about 55 percent of the population living below the poverty level and 24 percent living in extreme poverty. Free Software can be used to facilitate an inclusive and participatory process in drafting national poverty reduction strategies and in achieving their goals.
