Javier came to the US from Argentina in search for a better future for his family. When he arrived in 2001, he had no experience in landscaping. Once he got more experience in the field, he decided to open his landscaping business. Javier said the biggest challenge was dedicating all of his time and money to organizing the business while providing his children with financial support. As he said, adjusting to this “new country, new place, new work” was an amazing process and a learning experience. Javier now owns a successful landscaping business in South Florida and has three employees.
With this loan from Accion USA, Javier will buy a new lawn mower and other equipment that needs to be replaced. In the future, he hopes to keep expanding his business with new clients and get more contracts with commercial buildings and condos as well as private homes.
