Edgardo opened the first repair workshop of Perales so that both, residents and tourists could have a place to repair their vehicles in Perales without having to travel to Coelemu. With the support of Recupera Chile, he bought some of the essential tools he needed to have a broad range of vehicle repair services in his own shop. Previously, Edgardo didn't have tools to repair vehicles so, in order to do his job he had to travel to Coelemu for borrowing. In that city, he used to work as a mechanic in a garage. Edgardo had a year of experience repairing vehicles and a year of training.
