How a work of art depicts the vision of BRS

Anyone taking a walk through the historic heart of Leuven going from Jozef Vounckplein to Muntstraat will encounter a beautiful mosaic that adorns an entire wall. This is the work of José Osorio. This Honduran artist started his business in 2007 after receiving microfinancing from Pilarh’s fund for young Honduran entrepreneurs. BRS has been working intensively with this microfinancing institution for a considerable time now, regarding both advice and finance.

With a microcredit of just 480 euros, José developed his mosaic workshop into a thriving business with 14 employees. In 2017, he and his partner Katty flew to Belgium to create his artwork in Leuven. They were assisted in the project by more than a hundred volunteers. The artwork celebrated the 125th birthday of Cera and the 25th birthday of BRS.
