Venezuelans have been forced to emigrate due to dire economic conditions at home and many needs help in establishing a new livelihood in their host country. USAID works to support the World Council of Credit Unions’ Economic Inclusion Project (WOCCU) to improve the economic security of Venezuelans’ and local people in vulnerable situations through activities that support labor market insertion, strengthen microenterprises and facilitate access to financial services.

The Economic Inclusion Project will build greater socio-economic security for Venezuelan migrants and refugees in Ecuador and Perú as well as their host communities. Project activities are implemented in Lima, Perú and in Quito and Guayaquil in Ecuador, which are the cities with the largest populations of Venezuelan immigrants in the respective countries.

Los más de un millón de venezolanos que residen en Perú abandonaron su país en busca de una vida mejor, incluido el acceso a un medio de vida digno.  Esta búsqueda puede resultar muy difícil, más aún en el contexto de la pandemia.  USAID apoya actividades que faciliten la inserción económica de migrantes y refugiados venezolanos, así como de poblaciones locales.  Esta actividad, implementada por la organización no gubernamental local CEDRO, se enfoca principalmente en las ciudades de Lima, Arequipa y Trujillo, donde residen las mayores poblaciones de inmigrantes venezolanos, pero tiene alcance en regiones como las de la Mancomunidad Regional de los Andes donde se espera además potenciar el efecto positivo de una migración calificada.

The more than one million Venezuelans residing in Peru left their country in pursuit of a better life, including access to a decent livelihood. This pursuit can be difficult, especially in the context of the pandemic. USAID supports activities that facilitate the economic insertion of Venezuelan migrants and refugees as well as local populations. This activity, implemented by the local non-governmental organization CEDRO, is mainly focused on the cities of Lima, Arequipa and Trujillo, where the largest populations of Venezuelan immigrants reside, but it also covers regions of the Mancomunidad Regional de los Andes, where they look to enhance the positive effect of skilled migration.
