Ernesto works in a factory as a assistant supervisor machine operator. His salary is low and his wife helps him by selling used clothes and appliances in order to survive and have a good quality of life. He has two young children and he needs to put up a fence to afford his family better security. Since he was granted the house they weren't able to finish the project. In the future they hope to put up a side fence since it abuts the neighbor's property and there is no division between the two houses.
