Arturo is a member of the local livestock association. He lives on his ranch outside of the center of Ixtepec.

“Here on my ranch I am happy. In the city there’s too much noise. I am 100% a rancher. However, we need improvements to the road to town, since it is impassible in the rainy season. Also, we don’t have electricity out here. Sometimes, we use a car battery to watch television at night.”
