Hector comes from Honduras. Back in his own country, Hector used to work in the car business. After moving to the U.S. eight years ago, he started working in construction. He then had an accident, which left him unable to continue construction work. It was then that Hector reverted back to his passion, and started a business in which he sells, rents, and repairs cars.

This loan will allow Hector to buy the spare parts he needs to repair 7 of 30 cars in his shop so that he can sell and rent them out to the community. The repairing of these cars will allow him to generate more business and lead him to more success. Hector has great entrepreneurial drive and is very thankful for this opportunity to do what he loves!
