Gerado

Gerado sits on his bed in his one room home in the slum of Los Pinos. His home was built above the home of his grandmother's when his mom could no longer afford the rent in another part of the slum. She had to take out a loan to build the addition and stuggles to pay it off. To try to earn extra money she sets up a tent on the side of the road and sells plates of food containing meat fried plantains, and salad. Gerado often has to help her. This house where his Grandmother lives is one of the new housing bloaks built by the government in Los Pinos. They are fully constructed from cement and have a more permante feel than the shacks filling up the rest of the slum.
