Rigoberto's story

Rigoberto, 25, is a young entrepreneur. His academic level is grade 6. Today he works in a metal shop. His two children aged 4 and 2 will be ready to go to school.

He has been working in a metal shop for 10 years, a trade he learned from his father, a legacy he will never loose. Since he was able to work he helped his father, with whom he has a good relationship. He has never had other jobs. He does his work at home. He works all day.

With the loan requested from CAMPO foundation he will buy a compressor to provide better service to his customers. Also, he will buy a polishing machine and essential equipment for the work that he does. He says he feels satisfied because he will be able to better develop his work.

In the future his dream is to install a shop with machinery that will allow him to produce work of good quality and to service companies; he sees this for the short term. But he knows very well how to do that, by doing good work and by saving to invest.
