Eusebio
Eusebio lives in San Gustin Mextepec. He is a married man and he only has a 14-year old son. His son is in high school in a school located in their community. He doesn't have a house of his own because he lives with his father; it is on loan to him. Eusebio's wife gets along very well with her in-laws and she is very hard working. She is a housewife but she also works as a merchant selling undergarments for ladies and gentlemen in a plaza in San Felipe del Progreso.

Eusebio is a construction worker. He completed high school, and even though he is young there is no work for him. The only thing he was able to take up is construction, which is a trade that doesn't require training, but it is difficult work. He only works when there is a contract for a house, a store, or a building in the Mexico City.

Eusebio has also been a merchant for many years. He sets out together with his wife to work on Sundays at the plaza in San Felipe del Progreso. His wife sets up in one side selling undergarments and Eusebio sells shoes, and shoe care products, such as polish, brushes, dyes, as well as blenders. He also repairs blenders.

The difficult part about Eusebio's business is to keep his products away from the sun. If they are left in the sun the polishes expand or melt and the products won't sell.

Eusebio wants a better life for his family and a better education for his son. For this reason he wants to reach his goal of having his own merchandise. The greatest part of his merchandise is purchased with borrowed money. He wants to improve his business and not have to owe money, and to be able to support his family.
