Julian Reyes's story

Julián Reyes and his wife are a close family who inspire confidence. In spite of their age, they haven't stopped working to support themselves. Four years ago, they looked for a way to earn money and they decdied to start a grocery business. In the area where they live, stores are very scarce. This store is called, "Miscelánea Los Tres Vallejos" (The Three Vallejos Miscellaneous), which honors their last name and the number of kids they have. Their children support them economically. Several years ago, their kids decided to go to the United States to get better jobs and to improve their children's quality of life as well as that of their parents, who live in Mexico. Julián sees the need to supply his business for the Christmas season because many people come from outsiD. the city and they will buy more soft drinks, fried foods, and groceries in general.
