Pedro Francisco, 44, is married with one son who is studying in a university. He is originally from Leon, a place located in the western region of the country. Pedro is a person who is economically disadvantaged and who has a basic salary as a mailman for one of the local institutions.
Regrettably, due to a lack of economic resources, he was unable to study a university degree but he would have liked to have been a mathematician.
