Victoria Chavez de Gutierrez and her husband Esteban Gutierrez Loayza have lived for 50 years in El Ayllu. They migrated to Lima from Ayacucho, a city in the interior of the country. The couple, their children and grandchildren lived on a property that spanned a block and contained several buildings, including a warehouse where Esteban worked decades ago. In the rear of the property was a field of banana trees that the family harvested and ate. Beyond the field the main terminal of Jorge Chavez International Airport can be seen.
