Introduction to collecting debt in Peru
Do you have a hard time collecting money from people who owe you money in Peru? Do not worry; we can help you get paid by your Peruvian customers.
In Peru, "the debtor" is the person who owes a debt. "The creditor" is the person who issued the debt or invoice. If the original creditor collects the debt himself, this is called "first-party collection." If the creditor outsources the collection process to a third party, this is called "third-party collections."
The debt collection process in Peru
In Peru, the process of collecting debt usually happens in several steps. The image below explains our standard process for collecting debt in Peru:
1 Upload your claim:
If you want someone to help you get your money back, you will need to find a debt collection partner. You can upload your claim to their website. Debitura will give you 3 quotes from local partners in the South American country where your case is. This is free - you don't need to pay anything.
2 Amicable collection:
The collection process begins with sending reminders to the debtor through email, SMS, letter and other ways in the specific country. The goal is to get the debtor to pay or acknowledge the debt and start a payment plan. Debitura offers a no-cure-no-pay solution for amicable collection, where you only pay a small success fee if we recover your debt. Amicable collections with Debitura are 100% risk-free!
If the person you are owed money from has not paid you after you have talked to them, it is time to look at what to do next. We will look at how much money you are owed, the chance of getting paid, and other things to help you decide what is the best thing to do. There are three common next steps:
If your claim is for less than 2,000 to 5,000 Euros, it may not be worth taking any more legal action. In this case, we recommend "debt surveillance," where we will keep trying to reach your debtor and try to negotiate a friendly settlement.
B: Legal collections:
We suggest you start a legal process for bigger problems. The way to do it is different based on what your problem is and how big it is. Usually, it takes about a year and a half to finish the process.
C: Debt enforcement:
If the person you think owes you money agrees that they owe you money, or if a court agrees that they owe you money, you can ask the bailiff to help get your money from them.
At Debitura, we can help you with all three steps in Peru.

Our analysis concludes that the risk of running a business in Peru is medium-low. Based on this medium-low score, we recommend being careful providing credit and considering charging upfront payment or using credit insurance when trading if you don't know the customer in Peru well. If possible, provide a short credit period or even better upfront payment. The medium-low risk score is based on the following factors:
The economic risk in Peru
Our conclusion based on the economic risk factors, is that the economic risk in Peru is medium (3 out of 6). An economic risk of 3 out of 6 is relatively low in South America.
GDP and economic growth are critical drivers for economic risk.
The GDP of Peru is 223,25 bn. USD (2021), growing by 13,35% per year.
In terms of the size of its economy, Peru ranks #49 out of 183 countries and has a medium-sized economy.
In terms of growth rate, it is ranked #9 out of 183 countries and is therefore considered a fast-growing economy.
GDP per capita is 6692 USD, ranking Peru number #84 out of 183 countries. This means the purchasing power of citizens in Peru is around the average compared to all other countries.
You can see a more detailed picture of GDP and economic growth in Peru in the table below:
Another huge impact for the economic risk score is the inflation rate and the interest rates. You can see a more detailed overview of monetary data points in Peru in the table below:
The inflation in Peru was 4,3% in 2021 which is considered a medium inflation rate.
The interest rate for businesses is 10,98%.
The business environment risk in Peru
Our analysis shows that the business environment risk in Peru is medium (3 out of 6), which is a pretty average risk score in South America.
The business environment risk are determined by the level of economic freedom and rights in a country. The critical facts for Peru in the table below:
As you can see in the table, the property rights index is 53 in Peru, which is considered quite low in South America.
The business freedom index is based on 10 indicators, using data from the World Bank’s Doing Business study. The Index is 66 in Peru, a quite average score for a country in South America.
Peru's overall economic freedom index is 68 out of 100 and is based on factors such as the rule of law, regulatory efficiency, and market openness.
The political risk in Peru
The political risk in Peru is medium-high, with a score of 4/6. This is a pretty average political risk score in South America.
The governance and political stability indicators are vital drivers for political risk. An overview of Peru can be seen in the data below:
The rule of law index analyses to which extent agents have confidence in and abide by the rules of society, in particular the quality of contract enforcement, property rights, the quality of the courts, and the police's ability to enforce court orders.
When trading with businesses in a country, the rule of law index is critical as it describes your ability to enforce commercial contracts.
In Peru, the rule of law index is at -0,52 points, with the score going from -2.5 (weak) to 2.5 (strong). Peru has, therefore, a very low rule of law index, which means it is often close to impossible to enforce your contracts. We, therefore, recommend avoiding credits and recommend charging upfront payment instead.
Other drivers for the medium-high political risks are the very weak control of corruption, the very weak political stability index, and the very large shadow economy that is 41,53% of Peru's GDP.
The commercial risk in Peru
In Peru, the commercial risk score is 2/4, which in our model is a low score. This low commercial risk score is pretty average compared to the average in South America.
The commercial risk is relying on a country's international trade relationships. You can see some of the key facts for Peru in the table below:
Peru has a positive trade balance of 2,67% of GDP. This means that Peru imports fewer goods and services than the country exports.
The annual growth of exports of goods and services has been growing 17,09% annually - now 29,09% of GDP. Import of goods and services represents 26,42% of the GDP in Peru.
The financing risk in Peru
We have calculated the financing risk to be 2/4, which equals a low risk. A low financing risk score is pretty average for countries in South America.
The country's banking system, efficiency, and stability influence the financing risk. You can find the extra information for Peru in the table below:
In Peru, the credit information sharing index is 8 on a scale from 0 (low) to 8 (high). The consequence of that number, is that the access and quality of credit information available in Peru is high.
This makes it easy for you to understand the credit risk of your counterpart in Peru. You would be able to find a good local credit rating agency that can help you analyse the creditworthiness of your specific customers.
Your rights as a creditor are 7 out of 12 and, therefore, medium.
The low financing risk for creditors also impacts the high interest rate in the private sector of 10,98%.
