Carlos is a saddler, making leather items for horse saddles. He learned this work from his father, with whom he worked for 15 years. Then he married, became independent, and opened his own shop.

Currently, he does work for local ranchers and businesses.

He defines himself as a very hard-working man, and a fighter. He works for the good of his son.
