    Many of the people that live in this community are older people. Not many young people live in this town. De Soto is divided in two different directions in the school district. There are those that try to focus on their education to leave the community as quickly as possible, and then there are those that do not care and tend to stay in this town. Those that do not care tend to fall back on drugs, underage drinking, and grow up with the belief unemployment will help support them, as well as minimum wage is enough to live on. Those that do want to continue on with their education have a hard time in doing so. This community is not filled with wealthy families. Those that want to go on have to rely on scholarships and loans to get by. The town is not kept in clean conditions. Roads are in desperate need of repair, people tend to avoid one another. There is no true safe place for people to get together. It is best to stay inside in most cases and for people to mind their own business in order to live a semi-comfortable life in this town.

    This town does not offer many services. Those that do are not the best. People do not put their hearts and souls into their work. They do the bare minimum, and charge high prices. This is unfair to the community, and it is because of the selfishness in the town not many businesses survive. The only real places to eat are fast food restaurants. Other places fall out of business quickly.

    This area is very select in jobs. Those that do want jobs end up working at fast food restaurants here. Those that do not work at a small café, but the pay is terrible and it's extremely easy to get fired. People can get three dollars and twenty-five cents an hour at the café, and people in this area do not tip well. Most people that intend to live here take at least two jobs.
