Lino
Lino is a hardworking and determined man. He is constantly taking on challenges in order to get ahead and help his children who still depend on him. Lino is single and dedicates himself to caring for his children and to his work. At present this small, humble family lives in the city of Camaná, which is located in the south of the country; Camaná is known for delicious seafood dishes. As proof of that, Lino considers shrimp chowder the best dish of all, and therefore chose it as his favorite food.

Lino wasn't able to finish high school, but knew that that wasn't going to hold him back. Like the determined youth he was, he began to make excursions into different types of business until the moment when he bought a moto taxi. Since then he has worked twelve hours a day and attends to 50 customers. His performance and dedication show results at the end of the day, as he can earn up to S/.70 on a good day. This income and his constant effort have allowed Lino to enroll his children in superior schools, so that both can develop themselves professionally. He hopes that they will be very good professionals, honorable and passionate for what they do.

Lino's dream is to be able to buy another moto taxi and to make some repairs to his home, so that his children can continue with their studies. But to do this he needs to buy another moto taxi. Lino's goal is to buy it in six months and generate substantially more income, but in order to be able to buy it he needs to save and work hard. He has had the idea of making some repairs to his moto taxi and this way can secure his 'tool of the trade' and earn the income necessary for his great dream.
