Hugo's story

Hugo M. is 41 years old. He is originally from the city of Acahay. He is married to 38 year-old Felicia and they have two children. One of their children is school age and the other is in the fourth year of his Systems Analysis degree at a local university.

Hugo is a salesman who has been selling electrical appliances for more than 15 years. He goes from town to town looking for customers. Thanks to his hard work and his business, he has been able to build his own home in the very center of the city on a plot of land that he inherited from his father.

Hugo took advantage of the location of his home and set up a book store there which generates him a very important additional income. He will use this loan to take advantage of the season since the school year is over and he can take advantage of this fact and acquire batches of books much more cheaply.
