Rafael's story

Rafael is 63 years old. He is married and has three adult children who work with him in his shop making straw brooms. He has been doing this with his family for more than 30 years and, as a child, he used to work with his father, from who he inherited this business. Besides his children, two other persons work in his shop, so it provides work for two families. His goal is to continue to grow the shop, now that his brooms are selling well, despite the competition from plastic brooms.
