, Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra informed on Monday afternoon.
"We have seen the national registry of households, and we observe that there is a sector (of society) which —in the first reading— had not been deemed as vulnerable. However, after three weeks or a month without income, it becomes vulnerable," he pointed out.
Within this framework, the Head of State stressed that an "additional effort" will be made to review the general registry and include the missing vulnerable population. Thus, the Government studies the mechanisms to be applied, which will be announced either on Tuesday or Wednesday.
President Vizcarra indicated that —perhaps due to deficiencies in the last census (2017)— the most remote households in the cities had not been not reached out, as there are homes located in areas of difficult access, such as in the heights.
The top official added that if the State had not registered them in due course, it would do so soon because nobody can be left behind.
This economic support —he explained— would have come faster as the resources and political will existed. Nonetheless, the transfer is difficult, since not even a million vulnerable households own any banking account at all.
