Manuel is an honest, sincere, enterprising, and hardworking man who is dedicated to his family and always has worked hard to give them the best. He's very well known for these qualities in the area where he lives.

For several years he has made a living in livestock, raising animals. He has a lot of experience in the care of goats. He sells their milk for a good price in the park near his town.
