“Let’s start in Bolivia, where through a government initiative, a computer manufacturer will provide free computers to the students in the last year of junior high school.
It is a similar project to the one in Venezuela, let’s see the details:
Initially, a computer here is built every 55 seconds. The goal in the short term is to build one every 29 seconds.

Each computer is built with the latest technology. Every detail is carefully though out for its target market. It may fall for certain height; you may spill some liquids into it, sometimes kids may drink juice, or spill drinks onto their laptops but the computer will not have problems. Another important thing to point out, the software that it includes is educational software.
From this plant, the government seeks to produce computers, television and cell phones. Motherboard will be produce here starting next year.
The products will be sold to the public 30% cheaper than market prices. The idea is to supply these products at the national level so that every person can have access to them. It’s equipment of high quality with Intel processors.
The computer assembly plant will cost sixty million dollars to build. This year its goal is to build 116,000 units. The state-issued computers have already benefitted the students.”
