My name is Rigoberto I am 35 years old, married and with a beautiful 7 months baby.
Five years ago I created my own bussiness, Atelier Service, everything was going well until two years ago that I decided to participated in a goverment project making house for low-income families. The goverment had to pay to a company named Cocige and Cocige had to pay to me for each house that I finished. One day Cocige stopped paying and then closed the office and run away, didnt pay me the money of the houses that I finished. That company run away and let me with a debt to the bank for more than 65,000 dollars, that ruined my small company. I continued working repairing computers and installing CCTV systems, but with the pandemic crysis all the works was stopped.
Now I am here asking you for help. I made a 25 dollars promotion in Instagram, but I could´t collect anything. I want to start a project named, TAHUA, with my partner, a Marketing Professional.
TAHUA is a jewelry company that used TAGUA and other materials that the native people in my country, PANAMA, collect from the rainforest floor. I will use that with recycled materials (brass, copper, aluminium) for making precious pieces of arts that you can wear.
I choose this project because is a market that already exists and I can gain a very little space and go growing little by little. The company will be open in USA and can create 3 jobs in Panama and 2 in USA.
I have estimated a budget of 35,000 dollars, that will be use for engraving and cutter machines, materials, legal process (like the cost for open the company in USA), professional designer softwares, marketing costs, salaries.
The truth is that if I can´t raise all the money here, I hope to collect enough for make a good campaign in Kickstarter and Indigogo 2,500 dollars will be enough for marketing, open the company and make the prototypes,
I really appreciate your help and if I can return the favor to you, I promise to help other if all going well.
