Ribaldiño

Ribaldiño vive con sus papás y sus dos hermanas en el Km. 14 de la vía Leticia-Tarapacá, tiene 10 años y está en cuarto de primaria. Su clase favorita es la de matemáticas.

Hoy no fue al colegio porque tenía que ir al mercado a vender guamas llenas de dulces motas de algodón y jugo fresco de açaí que prepara su mamá. Vende un atado de seis guamas a dos mil pesos y una botella de dos litros del jugo púrpura a cuatro mil.

Mañana volverá al colegio.

Ribaldiño lives with his parents and two sisters in Km. 14 of the road between Leticia and Tarapacá, he’s 10 years old and is in 4th grade of primary school. His favourite class is Math.

Today, he couldn’t go to school because he had to go to the local market to sell guamas – a delicious fruit from the tropics filled with sweet cottony balls. He also sells fresh açaí juice prepared by his mother. He gets around one dollar for a pack of six guamas and two dollars for a two-liter bottle of the purple and energizing juice.

He will go back to school tomorrow.
