Hamilton Abel's story

Hamilton was born in Guayaquil. His business involves offering computer classes. Hamilton started providing these classes at the university to his co-workers. He then taught at a state school and was later named a formal instructor of computer science. At the moment, he works for the navy by providing his services as a teacher.

Hamilton works by himself from 9:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M., providing computer classes. His main challenge is dealing with the irregularity of his classes since he must travel for his job. Hamilton is not married and has no children. He is requesting a loan in order to buy a laptop computer and teaching materials.

When he was interviewed, Hamilton said, “My dream is to have either an academy or a cybercafé where I can teach people. In this way, I can contribute to the education and economy of my country. My other aspirations include having a family with a wife and children.”
