Elena Terán managed the company since its beginnings, being one of the first women in Ecuadorian Flower Industry. Florequisa’s founders and Elena Terán set a legacy in floriculture and every people’s heart. For Elena Terán, Florequisa is not only a company, it’s her life; and the people, her greatest gift. Always looking for all its people to keep going, to study, to be a strength at home and always seeking to empower the Ecuadorian woman and especially Florequisa woman.
