The District Villa Maria del Triunfo

Villa Maria del Triunfo (VMT) is a low income residential district on the southern outskirts of Lima. Most of the district’s residents are migrants from other Peruvian provinces who invaded the desert area. Over half of the population is poor, and a significant number does not have a regular income. The lack of water and electricity, malnutrition and general health problems are common occurrences.

Urban agriculture is promoted to fight poverty and develop the local economy.
