His repair shop is one of the busiest in the city of Juliaca because he is a very skilled and experienced mechanic. From a young age he worked in other shops, and now with all of the experienced he gained he has taken the step of opening his own shop, which has provided him with the income necessary to pay for his only child's education.

What Hugo likes most about his job is fixing cars and restoring them to like-new condition. He has 10 years' experience with this and his greatest challenge is obtaining the parts he uses for the repairs.

In the future, he dreams of saving enough money to open a larger shop where he can offer better service to his clients.
