The Peruvian Ministry of Development and Social Inclusion was created on 18 August, 2011, during the presidency of Ollanta Humala and the cabinet of Salomon Lerner Ghitis. The inaugural minister was Kurt Burneo. The incumbent minister is Paola Bustamante. The ministry was created with the purpose of turning the social programmes into productive tools for the benefit of the poor. One of its objectives is to create conditions so that beneficiaries of such social programmes as Juntos, Pension 65 and Cuna Mas, as promoted by Humala's policy of promoting social inclusion during his campaign, can use the subsidies for "financial leverage" to improve their quality of life, according to Prime Minister Salomon Lerner Ghitis.
