The family is involved in agriculture. They farm a 1 acre plot of Pitaya, a local fruit that is also used to make a very popular local drink. The plot of land was inherited from Pablo’s father. Pablo actually wanted a better life for him and his family by getting a higher paying job. He attempted to study computers and get a job in technology in one of the big cities. Unfortunately, Pablo could not finish the class because the commute was just too far.
