Diospi Suyana enters unchartered waters – and that twice over

It is never easy working with a Peruvian village community and finally getting a contract signed with Campesinos is even more difficult.  Yesterday, Wednesday, Diospi Suyana signed a lease of 225m² at an altitude of 3,933m.  Such a rental agreement is a novelty for Diospi Suyana.  The lease runs for 50 years after which it can be renewed.  Through this legal procedure a sale that would have been difficult to accomplish was avoided.

It is also the first time that Diospi Suyana will use solar power for its antenna tower from where we can reach a potential 0.1mio new listeners.  Several villages lie around the provincial capital Sicuani who are also in our aerial tower’s catchment area.  It was the third time that Doris Manco, Head of our Media Centre, travelled to Sicuani.  But her hard work was worth it.  At midnight Doris, building contractor Juan Talaverano and Dr John arrived at Curahuasi.
