Tengo como cuarenta y tantos años aquí. Me dedico a vender mis nopalitos para acabalar la renta porque no acabalo la renta para lo que recibo del seguro. 925 para la renta y recibo 826.

I've been living in this area for forty-something years. My job is to sell these "nopalitos" (cactuses) so I can make rent, because I don't make enough money with what I receive from social security. My rent's $925 and I only receive $826.
