Hugo is an artisan who makes jigsaw puzzles for children out of laminated wood. He sells them wholesale, making his deliveries above all at the La Tablada fair, where he already has clients who order from him each week. He also travels occasionally to the cities of Oruro and Cochabamba (he is starting to make trips to the interior of the country). Hugo lives alone; he has been separated from his wife for some time and has a daughter he can't see due to time constraints. Currently, he lives in anticresis (an arrangement in Bolivia where a fixed sum is paid at the start of tenancy instead of monthly rent) with his sister and his niece. He will use the loan to purchase a router that will optimize his work, since currently he does the work manually with a metal knife. His biggest dream is to give the best to his daughter, since she is the one he is working for.
