Originally from Colombia, Gustavo has been working for the last four years to create a successful lawn care and landscaping business. Like all small business owners, he struggled to keep his business afloat in the beginning but with hard work and dedication he was able to establish a business that supports two employees and has a strong reputation in the Miami community. Gustavo came to ACCION USA because it had become clear that he could not support his growing business with credit cards alone and needed the support of a lending institution to continue growing his business.
This is Gustavo’s first loan from ACCION USA. He is going to be purchasing newer and more equipment. In the landscaping business, providing customer service is key and Gustavo wants to be able to expand and provide the best services to his clientele. With the help of this loan, he will be able to make these purchases and work towards his future goal of taking on a more managerial position in the company. Ultimately, he wants to be able to stabilize and increase the standard of living for his family and the families of his employees.
