    I don't know about there, but in the US they sell something called 'cement patch' that might work for you

    To do it properly you have to bevel the edges of the crack, somwhat like a V.

    Make the crack bigger-wider and deeper-but be sure to put in some reinforcing steel mesh before filling with concrete. Otherwise the thin concrete just cracks again. That's the correct to do small concrete repairs.

    However, if you're unconcerned with aesthetics you could use some elastomeric sealing compound. It won't look like or harden like concrete but it'll remain somewhat flexible and won't crack. I have no idea if Ochoa or Americana carry such a product.

    New cement doesn't bond to old. You have to use a product with a binder.Dominicans always use "Cemento Blanco.NEVER works!

    Just go to "Casa Depot" on 27 de Feb...........................................

    Have you given Astroglide a shot, it can work wonders in tight places!

    I'm not a master builder only a D.I.Y.er. I, used to mix up a fine concrete with a VERY HEAVY dose of PVA adhesive like Resin W. It worked pretty well.
