Project for reconstruction of houses for our families in Pisco
Continuing with the support for our employees affected by the earthquake of August 2007, we launched the House Reconstruction Program for 61 employees, benefiting 40 of them in 2008, by giving them a financed loan in excess of 160 thousand dollars, ample facilities and personalized advice. In this way we provide support to obtain and correct the documentation that gives access to state benefits and take on the diagnosis of the damage to properties through a construction company.
The reconstruction of housings was part of many activities and of a comprehensive plan was established immediately after the tragedy occurred. It consisted of medical support and care for respiratory diseases in adults and children, food and logistical support to employees whose homes had been declared uninhabitable. Then followed the psychological support to overcome the grief of losing family members, including, at this stage, motivational workshops
Sustainable Management of Macro-Algae Resources in Atico
In Atico, we have begun to develop the implementation of an alternative enterprise among the inhabitants of the area which is the collection and marketing of macro-algae. This is conducted in a sustainable business framework that ensures them additional revenues during the periods of the year when there are no fishing activities.
