Rosalino

Paraguay
Caacupe, Paraguay / Flowers

A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase seeds, plants, fertilizers, hoses, etc.


Rosalino's story

Rosalino is 33 years old, married and has two children. He dedicates himself to selling garden plants, an occupation he has carried out for more than 17 years. Currently, he has a great deal of work because the city of Caacupé experiences many visitors, which translates into potential customers. The plants that he sells the most of are all types of flowering varieties, which are the ones that require the most care -- especially when they are in bloom.

This loan he requests is to invest into purchasing seeds, plants, fertilizers, hoses, etc. He is thinking about investing in expanding his business, including his shade roof. Even though he has plenty of room, this will allow him more square meters in which to grow his roses, carnations and other flowers, which are the ones that require special care and sell the most.
