Gustavo knows how to find the silver lining. After losing his grandmother, Gustavo created Cremations America in her honor and became committed to “bring peace to families that have lost a loved one.”

For four years, this Bronx native and now Florida resident, has used his two decades of experience in funeral homes to provide affordable service to families in their time of need. His daughter helps him run the business, a crucial aspect to this family man. He desires to leave behind a business and a legacy for his daughters and grandchildren to come.

By obtaining this loan, Gustavo will be able to offer a wider selection of urns to his clients and build a new quiet room where families can have the privacy to honor and respect their deceased loved ones. Help Gustavo continue providing this special service to his community.
