Mohammad Yusuf Amdani has made a positive impact in the region through the businesses developed by GK throughout the years.
33 years have passed since Mohammad Yusuf Amdani decided to move to Honduras, the country where he developed GK, one of the most solid and innovative groups in the region. Mohammad’s visionary and pioneering character led him to identify an opportunity in Honduras and found his first textile-related company in 1991, which he called Pride Manufacturing.
Over time, the company grew and became GK, a private multinational corporation whose main businesses and activities are found in five business units:
- Real estate
Mohammad was not satisfied with promoting change only in Honduras, and decided to expand to other countries such as Pakistan, Dubai, the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, and the Dominican Republic.

Sustainability is the basis of GK’s management, it operates with responsible business behavior, always seeking the benefit of its stakeholders, since its main focus is to develop people, connect with them and provide them with more and better opportunities. Thanks to this vision, the corporation has managed to generate a positive impact both economically, socially and environmentally.

The investment that GK has made in its people, in the environment, and in the communities, has led it to achieve strong growth and recognition.
