His work as a master carpenter makes Jesús very happy, and he is one of the most hard-working persons in this trade because he puts in such effort, patience and dedication to each and every piece of furniture he makes. Thanks to this, his customers are very satisfied and his client base increases considerably. Currently, with the help of two other youngsters, he creates a wide variety of designs with intricate finishes and beautiful details as requested by his patrons. Thanks to his patience and ability, he is managing to keep up with orders. However, he still requires raw materials such as lumber, varnish, and a few tools that he lacks.

Translated from Spanish by Mary Lynn, Kiva Volunteer.
