Site Visit

A representative from GlobalGiving met with Don Fabio C., a fisherman on the banks of the Guayuriba River. Don Fabio is responsible for monitoring the testing machine during the "short test" (the first month of testing). Afterwards, a long series of tests should last between 6 and 8 months. By then, molds for the first set of blades can be made, and tested.

Rain during this time was enough to make the usual route too difficult for passage. It took our Aprotec representative an exra hour and a half to reach the testing site.

I'll be checking in with the staffer from GlobalGiving for her account of the visit.
