Esteban's story

Esteban is storekeeper of a grocery store that he runs with his wife. Their business has been open for 11 years. Though by profession he is a mechanic, he does not practice much because he injured his feet in an accident. With this other income he is able to pay his basic expenses.

Esteban has been improving the infrastructure of his home, where he has built a wall that is very important for his safety. Currently, he will work on putting in a new roof and floor for the shed. He needs to buy blocks, sand, and cement to begin building.
