Salvador has worked in agriculture his entire life. He grows basic grains. He learned to do this from his father. He travels two kilometers to the parcel of land where his fields are, and where he gets help from one of his sons. He works from 6:00 in the morning until 12:00 noon. He also has experience raising cattle.

He dreams that his family will have a decent and stable life. The earnings from his businesses will be invested in his family, and to pay off the loan on time.
