Often those who have been here for some time and have gotten legalised set up their own businesses. And often those businesses cater to the needs of their own people. A "Locutorio" is a business that provides connection by telephone (for a fee) to other parts of the world, so that the imigrants can call home. This one also provides quite a few other services including helping them to send money home, and to comunicate by internet with their home areas. The "Rif" mentioned on the sign are a large and diverse people group among the descendants of Ishmael who are nearly all Moslem. They speak variations of Berber languages in various parts of North Africa. Most are illiterate, and most have not heard the good news of Jesus Christ.
