Jorge Martin
Jorge is a young man, barely 22, who is very eager to get ahead. He likes sports, and really enjoys eating "Tallarines con Papas a la Huancaína" (Noodles with Huancayo-style Potatoes).

Jorge was able to go to school until the fifth year of secondary. He would have liked to study civil engineering, but unfortunately, for personal reasons, his parents couldn't pay his expenses. But this didn't stop him, and is why he kept struggling until he had his own business. This is why he is currently responsible for providing public transportation service, from 8:00 in the morning until 10:00 at night.

He makes this great effort in order to help himself, and to buy himself another new mototaxi. He is a young man who constantly wants to move forward in his life. It is for this reason that he now has new goals, and one of these is to be able to buy himself a new mototaxi, with which he will offer better service, and will no longer have to visit auto mechanics frequently to solve a problem.

For now he wishes to carry out a few improvements to his moto taxi, which is to say, he wants to recondition it, so that he can go to work without worrying, knowing that he will have no difficulty during the course of the day.

With this new income, he wishes to increase his savings, and use them for new goals that may consider as time goes by.
