Juan Vicente


A loan of $925 helped purchase flowers and raw materials for his business.


Juan Vicente's story

Mr. Juan Vicente R. D. lives in Almada. Mr. Juan Vicente is a good person and very hard-working. He and his family make handicrafts at home using artificial flowers, and then later goes into the interior of the country to sell. He's been doing this for 10 years.

This profession was passed down from his parents, and Juan was later able to save a little capital to strike out on his own. Thanks to the good relationship he has with his customers, he now has an established clientele and his business continues growing.

He is asking for the loan to buy artificial flowers to make his wares and also for resale, since many families in the area are in the same line of work. Mr. D. thanks the Fundación Paraguaya for the support he has obtained for his business, through which he continues generating more income for his family.
