Real People, Really Good Coffee – David Torres Bisetti

David Bisetti

This week in Real People, Really Good Coffee we’ll visit with our good friend:

Peruvian Sol Reaches S./3 vs $1 USD

Today, the Peruvian Sol fell to S./3 to the US dollar at least for bank customers. In what has been an almost daily event, the Central Bank has been selling dollars to stop the fall of the Sol.

The price of the dollar is appreciating in the foreign exchange market and your (the) quote already reaches the S/.3,00 on the banks of the city since this morning. On the other hand, the Bolsa Valores de Lima (BVL) (Lima Stock Exchange) record positive indices at the opening of business.
