View original language description ↓
Don Miguel is married and has two children who are still minors, a 10-year-old-boy and a 17-year-old girl. HIs wife is a housewife and seamstress, a trade that lets her periodically contribute to their family's income. Don Miguel is a driver on a public transporation route, a position he has had for 8 years. His work day ends at 9:00 p.m. With a lot of sacrifice, Don Miguel has managed to construct his house. He would like this credit to be able to build a protective wall at the front part of his house to offer his family security and to protect them from robberies, which the Laureles Norte neighborhood is a frequent victim of.
