Carlos's story

Carlos, 32, has been married to Liz González for two years; they have a 6-month-old little girl. They live in the city of Coronel Oviedo’s Villa Virgen del Carmen sector.

Carlos is a Photographer. He takes pictures at and films all kinds of events. He also takes instant I.D. card-type photos. He’s been in this line of work for over 20 years but became independent at it four years ago.

This is work that he enjoys because it highlights his creativity; he captures happy moments in the lives of people which he enjoys doing very much.

He started while still very little with an uncle in Ciudad del Este. He learned quite a bit about this profession and when he got the opportunity to acquire his own work tools he became independent.

He comments that innovation is very important in this line of work because technology is the basis for success. He approached the Fundación to request support and he is grateful for the trust placed in him and in his work.
