Perfectly good image of the lad and the situation. Nt much to do. Might just touch the background with te burning in tool to darken a bit.

The workers in the background add context, they are an important part of the story, and I don't think they detract from your subject, especially having most of the bottom background one colour. The boy's blackened shirt also adds to your story, and I like the stance with the basket on his head.

You have good exposure on the boy, and I see you used negative exposure compensation for the bright conditions, which has worked well.
I like the way you have the boy slightly over to one side of your frame, with the worker and vehicle in the background showing within the space you give on the left side. You also have good eye contact here. I think this is an excellent image.

In my modification I cropped the top and bottom, and a touch off the right. This brings your subject to full centre stage and still leaves the background workers visible. My second modification has the top background slightly darkened, as suggested by Paul.
