Mr. T. sells roast chicken from his business on one of the major streets in the Benito Juarez neighborhood. He cooks the chicken himself, but because his business doesn't have a seating area he can only sell for take-out. "I would like to expand my business and add some tables. Many people come here to eat but don't stay and buy because I don't have seating. I'm asking for $1200 to change this."

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Alexis Hult
