For five years Utah State University students have been teaming up with an agricultural company in Peru, Danper, to help struggling entrepreneurs there launch new business ventures.

That company has just won first place for sustainable development from the World Business Council for helping to facilitate small business loans funded largely through the efforts of students from the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at USU.

Danper, a company that cans vegetables, won the Peru 2021 Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development, a non-profit organization that promotes corporate social responsibility and enterprises it believes will stimulate economic progress.

The students have been going to Peru as part of the Small Enterprise Education and Development (SEED) program which is part of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business.
