Gilmer Joel's story

Gilmer is 31 years old, married, and has three children. He lives in a neighborhood in the town of Villanueva, Cortes. Six years ago, he established his own tire shop. He repairs tires for all types of vehicles. Gilmer also sells products such as tires, rims, patches, and other items. His repair shop is located in a rented location.


The loan he is requesting is in the amount of 14,000 HNL and this is his second loan cycle with ODEF. He will invest the money in the purchase of wheels, tires, patches, and rims that he can use for repairs or sell. This will enable him to provide better service to his customers. His goal is to continue working so that he can obtain his own shop and improve the condition of his business. He also wants to buy machinery and equipment that he does not have.
