Hugo, 43, is married and has two children. He has been a businessman for more than 15 years. He first began selling orchids with his mother, while his wife ran a little store in their home. With the little savings he managed to get together from their profits and turn into his own capital, he began to buy orchids and get his own clientele, which at the moment is centralized in Argentina.
Hugo comments that his income is very good and his sales increased, since he satisfies his customers' demands.
He is requesting the loan to buy flowers (orchids) to be able to continue with his business.
Hugo is grateful to Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva for their constant support to strengthen his micro-business. At the same time, he hopes to always receive such valued support.
