Carlos Vladimir
Carlos is a man who suffered the loss of a loved one. This depressed him a lot, to the point that he almost died. However, now he wants to get back on his feet again with the work he was doing previously.

Carlos is from the Oriente [region of Bolivia] and he emigrated to the Altiplano [high plains] in search of better opportunities for life, finances, and relationships because the Oriente brings him bad memories. Once he arrived to the town of Patacamaya, he managed to get along well with the community members because he's good, sincere, and trustworthy. He decided to open a pharmacy to sell medicine, and he does free consultations as a community service to recover from the sentimental loss he went through in his hometown.

Carlos needs to buy medicine for the pharmacy. This way he'll be able to help people in the town of Patacamaya because with his knowledge and experience, he heals a lot of low-income people who go to him to resolve their health problems.

He feels better in Patacamaya because of the change of environment and the social work he began to carry out with children, teenagers, adults, and senior citizens in the area.
