Despite their size, they have been competing closely in bids with firms, which had different structures and abilities. This certainly shows their ability to be a strong market competitor. FRV has been a pioneer in market segments where no one had been before, and that has a lot of value.

Rafael Benjumea

Founder, FRV

At FRV we have a strong commitment to the economic and social development of the markets and communities in which we operate, and we are pleased to be able to deliver on this commitment through this innovative program.
