Peru

The Peruvian Blood Festival is a striking spectacle, with a giant condor strapped to the back of an enraged bull in front of a roaring crowd. For many Peruvians, it is a symbolic re-enactment of their liberation from Spanish rule. For conservationists, it is yet another threat to one of the world's largest birds.

UTSA’s International Trade Center teams have begun training new small business development counselors in Peru. The program is part of the government's Small Business Network of the Americas Initiative to help small businesses in other countries gain economic independence.

Small business owners know they have to develop a business plan, get funding, produce the product, and find buyers. Helping the business owner learn how to do all these things is the job of the Small Business Development Center at UTSA.
