Today was a great introduction to our target market! We went out to the outskirts of Lima to visit some business owners and learn about the informal economies that have developed in the last 20 years, and have been legalized with the help of policy changes instigated by Hernando de Soto's organization ILD. Below are pictures of the neighborhood we visited - Villa El Salvador, and Anni and Kat with ILD's VP of International Operations.
All About Us
- Aquaponics in Lima
- Kat, Anni, and Tim are graduate students getting their MSBA in Global Social and Sustainable Enterprise at Colorado State University. They will be constructing aquaponic systems in Lima, Peru to test the feasibility of such systems to feed malnourished communities in arid cities. They plan to show that aquaponics can provide fresh, organic vegetables to an area where they are otherwise untenable, while at the same time introducing a sustainable supply of fish.
