San Juan de Miraflores (SJM) is located in the Cono Sur of Lima (Southern cone). The district is one of Lima's pueblo jovenes (young towns), and arose from the desert-like lands when people from other districts of Lima moved in the middle of the 1950s.

Later, especially during times of terrorism in Peru, massive numbers of Peruvians from the highlands and jungle flocked to Lima and settled in San Juan de Miraflores.

Most residents live in houses made of all sorts of materials, some have access to electricity, but many lack running water or plumbing. This is a district where a lot has to be done.
