His wife tended to the store while he worked on buying animals to do farm work, which they would later sell for meat in the store. The whole family works together in the store now, as it is the most important and highly-trafficked store in the city. He now wants to buy more merchandise such as drinks and basic staples such as flour, yerba, noodles and rice in bulk in order to get lower prices and thus obtain better earnings from the sales.
