relative's house, with his wife and son. But he would like to have a house, a
home of his own, and some financial security, so he decides to become an entrepreneur.
At first his haulage service pays him good, and so he starts building a house. But as the winter season draws in, he starts losing his business and fails to find any good jobs. The house is completed, but his spine snaps. Now his wife has to get a job, so she opens a dressmaker shop at her home, affiliated to the village co-op.
