- Name: Jake DeBerry
- Location: Taricá, Ancash, Peru
I am serving in the Peace Corps as a business volunteer until August 2009, working with artisan associations in the Cordillera Blanca. The Peace Corps' mission has three simple goals: - Helping the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women. - Helping promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served. - Helping promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans. My main objective as a business volunteer is to help educate those I am working with in basic business principles that will help them reach their goals. I´m living in a town called Taricá, 10km north of Huaraz, the capitol of Ancash. Taricá is at 2,900 meters elevation with a population around 1,000 people.
