Grover works as a hardware distributor. He is in charge of looking for clients and taking their orders. After he has gathered a large number of orders, he places his order in La Paz city, and later distributes his client's orders. There are months when orders are high, but there are also months when, despite his hard work, he doesn't manage to cover living necessities. So, with the help of his vehicle, he also works as a taxi driver, and in this way manages to sustain his home. Teodora also works selling perfumes. The couple are very dedicated to their work, and their biggest dream is that their youngest son studies a military career. Even though he has 4 years left at school they realise that they need to save for when this moment arrives, and it is because of this they are working so much now.

Grover took charge of looking for finance to acquire more merchandise, as he hasn't been able to create an distribution agency yet as he needs more capital and clients. With the passing of years he will achieve having his own distribution warehouse.
