Santos Humberto's story

Santos is 34 years old and studied up to the 9th grade in school. At present, he is married and his wife dedicates her time to domestic chores. He has 2 minor children, both of whom are in school.

Santos has created metal structures for the last 10 years, a skill that he learned from his uncle. He works at home from 7:00 am until 3:00 pm.
