    Estimado Carlos,

    Ante todo darle las gracias por sentar bases en la seda para su recuperacion. Creo por lo poco que se que gracias a usted esta empresa no ha quebrado.
    Mi pregunta es la siguiente ¿ Cree que se esta ejecutando el plan de viabilidad correctamente? y si ¿cree que este dara sus frutos proximamente?
