Gamarra is one of the main commercial markets of Lima and Peru. Just a few blocks from the Wholesale Market, in the populated district of La Victoria. Lima, Peru. 11/01/2011

Gamarra is one of the main commercial markets of Lima and Peru. Just a few blocks from the Wholesale Market, in the populated district of La Victoria, it started as a marginal business place and later it changed to become a mixture between formal and informal Peru, led by Juan Infant, a young business man born in the capital district of San Borja. Gamarra, whose shops that sell textile products, receives today more than 150 thousand visitors per day, counts on 120 commercial galleries in a space of 40 blocks; the 14 thousand shops are dedicated to the commerce, training and preparation of the textiles; it gives jobs to 60 thousand people; it mobilizes near 60% of all the textile sector and Peruvian preparations destined for the domestic market. Unique in Latin America, it is the place with more business men competing in Peru, with the greater number of commercial transactions per minute, in the country.
