Eriberto is 56 years old and works as a laborer. He earns the equivalent of about 14 USD/ month.
Eriberto and his wife live in a space created by dividing Regla’s space horizontally and making two rooms out of one. To enter Eriberto’s home one has to climb stairs that look more like a ship’s ladder. The trick is to enter on your knees because the doorway is only one meter high. In fact, one has to start crawling even before reaching the top of the stairs.
Eriberto makes it look easy. It’s not.
The ceiling height is only about six feet.
Here one can see the top half of what used to be a huge window.
Well worn flooring.
