Guillermo's testimony is and inspirational insight on how important it is to think about future income while you're young. 
His part of a gouvernamental program that's called "Colombia Mayor" (Elder Colombia) that gives a monthly economical help to elder people in low-income communities. 
But the most important part of this video is not the program itself, is the testimony of this man that teach us a lesson of thinking about the future while we are young because, he says "if I've would known that there was a way to secure the income for my elder future I've done it". 
No further comments on this inspiration, let the Guillermo speak for himself.
