Manuel's story

My name is Manuel, I am 45 years old and live in San Miguel Teotongo. I am a widower.

I live in a house with my daughter who will soon be 18, my son who is 13, and my mother who is an old person. My mother helps me take care of my sons.

I would like to mention that on one hand, I´m an excellent baker and in the other that my sons are excellent students. My biggest accomplishment is that I have been able to take care of my children and my mother.

My bakery is called, Amparito, that is the name of my mother, and I want to be known as the best baker in the neighborhood.

I have been baking bread for over 25 years, I purchase the inputs in large quantities and later bake chocolate and sugar donuts and sell them in the street of my neighbourhood. I also earn additional income by working as a mason and blacksmith.
