In Bolivia, ? – 20ᵗʰ century, two units of mass used for coca. In the towns of Coripata and Coroico in the department of La Paz, about 23.00 kilograms. In the town of Chulumani, also in the department of La Paz, 27.60 kilograms. It is probably significant that the latter value is exactly ten times the size of the kcupmo.
