Beside the cattle raising, in Pachancho there is a small school constructed in 1972 by the Salesian foundation, that later will be in the state hands, and a small brick factory which they use to build their new houses, which replaced the adobe ones.

There are a total of 130 people living in this community. I’m travelling with Father Antonio Polo to know the situation and lifestyle of its inhabitants. The way it’s difficult and uncomfortable, there is no paved road yet, and the higher we get, more difficult is to see the landscape, as we are entering in a dense cloud. The scenery is curious; inside this gross cloud the mood is not sad because of their coloured houses and clothes.

Pachancho is one of the poorest communities of Salinas. It’s over the 4000 meters high, and the arable land is not appropriate for cultivation, but for the cattle. In this moment suffers a very big cultural change, they are going from shepherd to cattle breeder; and they are starting to use milk from their cows for cheese. The name of Pachancho is Pre-kichuwa, the meaning it’s unknown. In the meadows of Pachancho the alpacas graze and the climate is perfect for their breeding. But it’s a problem for the quality of the wool that the cattle breeders don’t have the habit to separate the alpacas from the llamas, and when these two animals reproduce, the hair of the offspring its worthless. The breed should be pure so they have quality hair. We are working on the consciousness of livestock farmers about this topic.
