Microbusiness/Microempresa #1: Francisco


2016-07-14 08.21.14

This is Francisco (a Colombian) and he is one of the friendliest people on the way to work. He gets up at 3:15 a.m. to prepare tamales and sells them from his pickup on the street in front of where Jody and I (Scott) work.  People sit down at his tailgate or at a small table and chairs that he sets up.  If it rains, he adds a tarp and umbrella to keep his customers dry.

Este es Francisco (un colombiano) – él es uno de las personas más amigables en mi (Scott’s) ruta a trabajo.  Se levanta a las tres y cuarto en la madrugada para preparar tamales y los vende desde su camioneta en la calle frente del lugar donde Jody y yo trabajamos.  Sus consumidores se sientan en la tapa trasera or en una mesa y sillas que él pone en la calle.  En caso de lluvia, añade una carpa y paraguas para mantener a sus consumidores secos.
