View original language description ↓
Alex is a young father at 20, and since his daughter was born he has had to undertake many jobs to take care of his wife and daughter. He currently sells second hand artifacts, merchandise that he brings from the city of Tacna and that he sells on foot around the city of Juliaca. As well as this job in his spare time this young father and his wife want to make clothes with the hope that this will get them more income and cement their dream of one day owning their own house. They need to buy raw material (wool) in order to start on this big project.
