Notes: The father is a farmer who plants coffee on farms owned by others. There are often days when there is no work to do, resulting in a job which is less stable than desired. He makes around Q25.00 and Q35.00 ($3.20 and $4.50) each full day for which there is work.
During the winter season, the rain enters the house, allowing everything to get wet. They find it needful put nylon sheets around the walls to protect themselves against times when it rains.
