It is now almost three decades since the original data on Eustaquio Jiménez’ multiple enterprise were collected. Much has happened in the meantime. The violence brought by the Shining Path movement (Sendero Luminoso) and, to a lesser extent, the MRTA (Movimiento Revolucionario de Tupac Amaru) reached its height in the valley between 1989 and 1994, even though the Sendero leader Abimael Guzman was captured in 1992. The economy had run into serious decline, exacerbated by an increase in the national debt due to large imports of cheaper foodstuffs, and agricultural and livestock production dropped. The younger generation of the Jiménez family had dispersed through transnational and internal migration, and the trucking business had moved its centre of operations with Eustaquio’s son Atilio and family to Trujillo on the northern coast.
