Reinaldo Maximiliano
Reinaldo Crespín, 58, lives in an urban area of El Suburbio, Guayaquil; he has four children who are 31, 25, 25 and 18 years old.

Reynaldo used to work in a tailor shop but, when his children saw how exhausted he was and that he needed to have his own home-based business, they decided to buy him an industrial sewing machine.
