They live together in a rental house which is in the town of Casacoto. For two years he has been buying and selling potatoes wholesale. He travels to different places in the country to sell his town's produce. However, when he started his family, he decided to invest in farming in order to have an additional income. He started sowing potatoes, peas and beans (agricultural products). With Jessica's support, he can tend them and watch them grow strong, without many problems. However, conscious of the fact that he must work to provide his family with a good future, he is thinking of expanding his wholesale business. “The most important thing in this business is to be known”, he confirms.
