Benedicto is a new producer to the Monkaaba network, and has perhaps one of the most unique stories of any of those we work with. Born in Bogota to a potato growing family, his first employment was in the construction industry some forty years ago. He would spend ten years working as an apprentice and another ten as a construction manager before he set out on his own as an independent contractor. This work put him in contact with the oil industry, where he worked for six years before a serious accident left him injured in his left knee and unable to safely pursue his lifelong career.
