The district municipality of Paccho is a local administration in the rural area North of the capital of Lima and has a population of 7000. 

Its local public policy not only aims to provide public services to families but mainly to promote local development. Its strategy is to maintain positive relations with the national government which will allow it to obtain financing from different Ministries for infrastructure and productive projects in its territory and will, in turn, mobilize citizen participation to create a sustainable social economy sector. This will give rise to governance with transparent management and proper use of the municipal budget. Despite being a small municipality which lacks in management of economic development, its activities are aimed at promoting employment, decent income and forms of self-managed social economy.
