I was driving home after dark and passed this small tienda. There’s a lady on every corner selling tortillas, so the competition is massive. You can usually get 4-5 tortillas for 1 Quetzal (.13 cents) which means the profit margin is horrible. They have to buy the corn, boil the corn and then grind it BEFORE a single tortilla is made.
This is what they do to survive. They might make 30 Quetzales a day ($4 dollars), enough to by some extra food. Opportunity is thin in Guatemala. This is the struggle. This is the fight. This is “La lucha”.
