Time off re-energizes us for our next project. This helps calm down our mind and ensure all the fatigue is gone. However, not everyone gets this chance. Different individuals are blocked by various issues. The people of Joao Pessoa were blocked by the lack of luxury facilities in this area. They had to travel to other places to access this joints. This led to high costs incurred for the activities. Roberto Santiago observed this as he grew up. He decided to give his people a place that had all the recreational facilities.
The journey of Roberto Santiago did not begin in large steps. It was gradual. First, he went to the University of Joao Pessoa and Pio X-Marist College. Here he studied Business Administration. This would prepare him for his entrepreneur’s journey. This would also equip him with the basics that he needed for investment. Academic knowledge is necessary to every business person. It helps in the management of employees and financial records as well.
Roberto Santiago was then employed in Café Rosa. This was a home décor company. He utilized this opportunity to learn skills in home décor. With this knowledge and the capital that he had acquired, he began his cartonnage company. Here, he manufactured cardboards using cartons. This eventually transformed into the most prominent business in the area.
Despite the success, this was not where the passion of the investor lied. His love was in Real Estate. In 1987, he went ahead and purchased land on which, he would lay the Roberto Santiago. This was his ultimate project all along. In 1989, he launched the mall.
The residents were highly impressed with the scheme. They immediately branded it a small city. This is because of the number of premises that the Manaira Mall has. Among the facilities are, banking facilities, food courts, jewelry stores, boutiques, colleges. This means whether you want cloth shopping, jewelry shopping or any general shopping, the mall has you covered.
Then there is the Domus Hall; this one is built on the Manaira Mall. It is the most magnificent thing the people of Joao Pessoa had seen. This was the ultimate surprise to the people. The Domus Hall can hold 14000 people. 100000 standing individuals and 4000 sitting individuals.
The size of the mall does not compromise the efficiency of the hall. The hall is designed to ensure that everyone can view what is happening on the screen equally. Then there is the air conditioning. A lot of effort was put to ensure that the environment is conducive for everyone.
The Roberto Santiago Manaira Shopping Mall has improved the lives of the Joao Pessoa people. The entertainment sector has blossomed. Roberto’s dream has come true. His people can now access all the fun joints, without incurring the transportation cost.
