Juan Jesus's story

Juan Jesus is a hard working and dedicated man. Fifteen years ago, due to circumstances beyond his control, he lost some teeth. Since then he has been careful not to open his mouth when he talks and even when he laughs for fear someone will laugh at him. This has been traumatic for Juan Jose as well as a problem for eating because it is difficult for him to chew some food, and he is afraid he will choke because he can't chew properly. At this time, he sees the opportunity to fix his teeth, which will allow him to do activities that he hasn't been able to do. For that, he needs the money to go to the dentist so he can put in some new teeth.
