Sharing the Responsibility

In villages in Guatemala, every family member takes on responsibility. It is very common for teenagers to pay for the family electric bill or for weekly food if they have a job and very often the big sister cares for the younger sibling no matter how old either of them are. Lilian is only 11 years old but is already an expert in caring for her baby brother.
