Jhayrus: The business-minded 13 year old in the Philippines
As pandemic restrictions ease slightly in the Philippines, children can be seen all around in this narrow street in Malabon City. Thirteen-year-old Jhayrus lives with his parents and two younger siblings in a 50-square-foot windowless room that opens directly onto the street. A corner of the room is occupied by a bed. The remaining floor space is used for cooking, storage and sitting.
