Jesus
Jesús, 40 years old, is a working man. He lives with Bertha, his wife of 20 years. Together they have three young children whom they care for in the house he inherited from his parents 20 years ago. When he was a boy, he learned to farm and raise animals. From there, he decided to study agriculture and livestock at a recognized university. His studies were paid for thanks to his work because when he was 16 he started planting all types of crops, such as rice, beets, carrots, cauliflower, artichokes, and broccoli; he specializes in this. He sells the harvest at the city market.

But the work he loves most is raising guinea pigs. He has 500 of them. His secret is maintaining their positions; he separates them according to their age and relationships. Every three months, the number of animals grows. The guinea pig feed is mostly alfalfa, which Jesus plants; this is because alfalfa has high nutritional value. People know him, and his customers are constantly ordering guinea pigs to sell or eat. His short-term plan is to purchase a male guinea pig and 10 females to begin raising higher quality animals. Jesus will invest the money in the purchase of organic compost to fertilize his alfalfa crops since this is what he feeds his animals. The drought season will start, and he wants to take advantage of it.
