At the age of 58 years, Roberto is the envy of many people as his investment in the mall industry is highly profitable. Roberto began as a script writer, who had no dream for going into business. He started by writing children books, which did well. However, while there he further developed an interest in producing films as well as directing them. Another of Roberto’s interest was bawling and motocross. Moreover, he also wrote blog posts, targeting the young and old people.

After his successful blog post career, Roberto Santiago gained some skills in investment. He decided to sharpen these skills by joining Marist College. He later joined the Joao Pesao University Center, graduating with a Bachelor of Business Administration. Roberto believed that he did not just gain the skills for nothing but to pursue a business career. While in college, he was ambitious; he always looked for ways to advance himself businesswise. However, he lacked lofty amounts of money to do business. Therefore, he decided to start where he was with what he had at hand. Roberto started a small café called Cafe Santa Rosa and safely kept the savings away. These savings later helped Roberto to start a cartonnage company that became the foundation of his success in life. The cartonnage firm dealt with manufacturing cardboard and decorative and utilitarian items. As usual, Roberto Santiago had mastered the art of saving some money for later advancement. The savings from this venture helped him buy a huge piece of land on which he built the Manaira Shopping Mall that has brought him so much fame and success. His dream was to build a shop that would provide all the goods and services under one roof.
The Maniara shopping mall is rated as the largest and most modern mall in Brazil. It attracts local people and tourists from other nations.
