Roman's story

Román lives with his wife María Luisa Téllez. They form a family together with their two school-aged children. Román has worked for a security company for a year, and his wife has worked as a housekeeper in a private residence for two years. As a close family they started up a business together, selling hamburgers and burritos under the name “El cuadro“ (The block) during weekends when they had the opportunity to tend to their stall efficiently. When one of their children fell ill they had to close the business, but now that they have recuperated Román and María Luisa are applying for a loan so that they can set up their business again since their customers continue to ask after them.
