Eduardo is 62 years old and married to 59-year-old Amada Gonzalez. They have five children, all of whom are married and five of whom are professionals who have received degrees in Education.

Eduardo was working initially as a cattle butcher before he later decided to change professions. Eight years ago he began working as a taxi driver. During the first four years, he rented his friends' cars to use for taxi service. With the earnings he was able to save, he purchased a vehicle for himself. Eduardo is known as as one of the most attentive taxi drivers in the city of Caaguazú.

His dream is to buy a light truck to use in his taxi service, since this vehicle generates more income.
