No deed, no title, no loans...no rights.

High in the Andes Mountains of Peru lie the ruins of Machu Picchu, the historic royal retreat of the Inca Empire. The indigenous people still farm this valley. Eusebio Mendez Atau and his family farm the land as did Eusebio's father and grandfather for the last 100 years. Still, he is unable to hold legal title to the land on which his livelihood depends. Without legal title, Eusebio cannot get a loan to buy more seed or more land. He cannot borrow to educate his children or improve his home. Nor can he benefit from the sale of the property.

But in their struggle to own property, the people of Eusebio's village have advocates they have never met. Through the work of The Institute for Liberty and Democracy in Lima, which fights for property rights and the rule of law, Eusebio's Dream has finally come true. There is cause for celebration in the village— Eusebio and his neighbors have received legal title to their land at last!
