José Leonel's story

Sr. José is 29 years old, married, and has a seven-month-old child. He resides in the community of Cofradía in the town of San Pedro Sula, Cortés.


Don José worked at a paint and body shop. Using his experience, he decided more than two years ago to generate his own income and open a repair shop where he provides good service and attention to his customers.


He is requesting a second loan from ODEF and Kiva in the amount of 15,000 HNL. José is very grateful for his previous loan, which helped him achieve financial stability and develop this business on behalf of his family. With this loan, he will buy waterproof coating, paint, masking tape, thinners, and other supplies so that he can improve his paint and body jobs. He will continue his dream of growing his business and providing good service so that he can turn it into a large automotive service company.
