Jun '09
Hand-made craft products, those that are manufactured by housewives from Huancayo are enjoying high demand in Italian market. This is all due to the productive craft workshops, which are being promoted by Provincial Council.

The Economic and Tourist Development Management of this council is providing training to these local housewives with the support of the Business Promotion and Development Centre (Ceprode).

At present, there are about 500 women, who are pursuing these training courses to support their family and to enhance the quality of life. All these women are from the social programs Vaso de Leche and Comedores Populares (Welfare Kitchen).

These women are expert in making variety of things, with recycled materials, such as purses and handmade bags as well as cushions, tablecloths and sheets. All these hand-made things are sent to Italy for exhibition, which later get commercialized.

These products are also being sold in domestic markets such as Lima, Arequipa and Chiclayo (Lambayeque).
