He said that after returning from Gulf, he had a dream of starting a business in Moodubelel since the last three years. However, due to the Covid 19 pandemic his dream could not be realized. With the easing of the Covid situation, he approached his cousin Vincent Fernandes with the idea who whole heartedly supported him and in consultation with Victor D’Souza who had a piece of land on the Main Road, took up the task of constructing the building and the ground floor shop area was allotted to Louis Alva for his dream project.

He appreciated the idea of Louis Alva in starting a hardware, paints and electrical shop and wished him well in his business.


Victor D’Souza in his vote of thanks said that the name of the building ‘Florence’ was derived from the names of his late mother Florin D’Souza and late father Lawrence D’Souza. The piece of land used to raise the building was formerly rented by his late father for the tailoring shop which was later purchased by Victor D’Souza.
