Juan works with his dumper lorry, moving aggregate in the area. He still lives with his parents and had to work from a very young age as his father went to Spain and his mother stayed at home with his brothers. His mother has a pig farm in Cliza and sometimes Juan used to stay at the farm to feed and look after the pigs, as this was their only source of income.

Juan is studying petroleum engineering and he takes advantage of every night and early morning to take his classes and so prosper. Juan is applying for a loan to buy a gas tank for his dumper lorry as he spends even more with petrol. He is a hard-working person who is dedicated to his job.
