Luis Ernesto Moreno Rivas, El Salvador

Luis was born in Candelaria de la Frontera, in the province of Santa Ana. Looking for better job opportunities, his mother decided to move to Sonsonate, a medium-sized city in the northwest. There the economic conditions remained tricky, so Luis grew up in an economically difficult environment.
To preserve Luis and his brother Carlos from the same fate, she encouraged them to perform at school. She also animated her sons to ambition higher education and to look for opportunities and seize them. Due to good performance in school and his desire to overcome the economic misery of his family, Luis applied to the prestigious Escuela Superior de Economía y Negocios (ESEN). He passed the entrance examination and became a Fundación Educación fellow. Five years later, Luis successfully graduated as a business engineer and today manages financial projects at AVIANCA, one of the largest airlines in Latin America.
