Dister is 24 and single. He's earned a living selling clothes for the past 5 years, a business he learned from his father who also makes his living this way and from whom he learned a lot. He usually buys clothes from Bolivia at the Fouth Municipal Market where merchants sell to both retailers and wholesalers from Capiata, San Lorenzo and Ita. Thanks to his efforts, he was able to finish building his house. For the future, he's thought of having a large shop where he would be able to show his merchandise and better sell his products.
