Roberto Angelo's story

Angelo is a very able young man, dedicated to making women's shoes. He began this activity thanks to his uncle who taught him the profession. He makes shoes from imitation leather and now he wishes to make leather shoes, for which reason he asks for a loan to buy a larger and more powerful machine.

Angelo lives in his Aunt Maria Dolores' house. She is employed in the Camino Real Hotel and also receives income from her car which she lets out as a taxi. They live in the Alto Pampahasi zone. Angelo used to live in the city of Cochabamba where he learned to make objects in bronze.
