Sector el Hoyo in Rio Chiquito is a small rural subsection of one of the first-ever settlements recorded as "Barrios" in Ponce, PR. In 1878 Manuel Ubeda y Delgado reported that in Barrio Portugues there were 155 families residing in 33 houses and 100 bohios. Majority of residents are 60+(22%) and still give very detailed anecdotal accounts of extreme poverty and hardship due to lack of access to basic needs such as; water electricity and education.

Younger generations are ready, willing, and able to step up to the challenge and together not only continue but raise the bar to a new standard.
