Luís Azamat's story

El Sauce is a town where milk and honey are in abundance due to the nature of its land which are perfect for agricultural activity. The majority of the town's inhabitants survive by producing foodstuffs which derive from said milk and honey. It was in this bountiful town that the young Luis Azamat was born and grew up with the traditional local customs.

Luis began studying civil engineering because he desires to construct buildings for the good of the community. He now works for a state-owned company where he has worked for a number of years, primarily building homes for people with low resources.

He is currently applying for a loan in order to pay for university coursework so that he is better prepared and up-to-date with industry technology. The coursework is very expensive and he cannot cover the cost with his salary alone.
