Driving Financial Empowerment: Miami Dade College and South Dade Kia Join Forces

At South Dade Kia of Homestead, we’re not just about selling cars but about empowering our community with knowledge. Recently, we had the honor of collaborating with Miami Dade College, Homestead Campus, for an enlightening event focused on educating students about responsible car purchasing. Boris Lopez, our esteemed General Director, led the discussion and shared invaluable insights into the intricacies of car buying and financial literacy.

The event garnered enthusiastic participation from the Young Money Club and Trio Club, highlighting a shared commitment to nurturing financial awareness among young adults. Boris Lopez engaged with students, stressing the importance of understanding credit bureaus, payment history, and their impact on financing options. Through illuminating discussions, attendees gained critical insights into managing credit card usage, discerning lease and finance options, and asking critical questions when buying a vehicle.

Each attendee received custom South Dade Kia journals, representing our dedication to providing tangible resources for informed decision-making. Boris Lopez’s articulate responses to student inquiries underscored the significance of financial literacy in pivotal life decisions.

We thank Dr. Oscar Loynaz, President of Homestead Campus, and Aida Varela, M.S., LMHC, for their invaluable support and gracious hospitality in hosting this event. Their commitment to educational initiatives enriches our community in profound ways.

As we reflect on the success of this collaborative endeavor, we recognize the transformative power of knowledge. At South Dade Kia of Homestead, we remain steadfast in our mission to empower our community with the tools and insights needed to make informed financial decisions. Together, let us continue driving towards a future where economic empowerment is accessible.
