Miguel works in agriculture on a part of a piece of land his father gave him; he grows his products to subsequently sell them in the local market. On the other hand, when he’s not working the land he helps his spouse to sell groceries Monday to Sunday with no days off. He has a baby they support by means of both jobs. The money he’s asking for is to be able to enlarge his grocery store so that they can generate a bit more income and be able to move their little boy ahead.
