    The achievement unlocks when Jensen accepts an offer to exchange an item he has for an item one of the other inmates has. The earliest opportunity for the achievement is for Jensen to accept the request for a trade by the inmate standing at the door to the yard.

    Attached is a video that shows this achievement unlocking within a couple of minutes of gaining playable control over Adam Jensen. The below video shows Jensen acquiring some booze from a hiding place in a room just across the corridor from where he wakes up--Room A315. He goes down two flights of stairs and follows the objective marker to the yard. Just before entering the yard, he talks to an inmate at the door who offers to trade a multi-tool for some alcohol. If Jensen gives him the alcohol, the achievement unlocks:

    The Neuropozyne that Jensen picks up in the room to the right of where he wakes up can also be traded for the achievement. The inmate who will trade a multi-tool for the Neuropozyne is locked in his room and will not be available for the trade quite as early as the inmate who waits at the door to the yard. After the cut scenes in the yard, if Jensen goes to room A214, he can trade the Neuropozyne. If no previous trades have been made, that will unlock the achievement. Note that one can find booze and various items in other rooms. I chose A320 and A315 because they were close to the start of play.

    The video shows a little more continuity than is necessary. It is part of a complete video walkthrough for A Criminal Past for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and, accordingly, shows the progression necessary for the walkthrough.

    There's another inmate you can trade with. After seeing The Fixer (or perhaps, just after seeing D-Town?), you can find a guy in Cell Block A-214 asking for Neuropozyne. You can find one in the Secret Panel in A-320. He'll also give you a Multi-tool in exchange.
