Jorge Antonio's story
Jorge is the owner of business that is cherished by the rural workers and residents of Puerto Escondido. It is a pool hall, and there are few in the area. Here, the rural workers come to have a beer and share a game of pool with their neighbors. This is one of few establishments in the area that offer something different and a little fun. With his customers in mind, Jorge wants to perform maintenance on his billiards tables and will invest the rest of the money in the purchase of beer and “aguardiente,” the traditional drink of Antioquia. His dream is to carry on with his business, share some good times with his neighbors, and to provide a future for his two children, ages 11 and 7, who are his inspiration to work every day.
