Robinson Arley's story

Robinsón, age 27, is a young man who loves his family and his work. He learned how to be a barber from his friends who taught him this trade. Robinsón is passionate about his work and needs to start generating income so that he can help his family with the household expenses. He decided to open a barber shop in a location that was obtained by his mother. Robinsón has been a barber for five years and is satisfied with what he has achieved.
