Genaro's story

Genaro is 60 years old and for more than 30 years he has sold fish. This profession has improved his income for he and his four children since they were very young. He has liked his business because the sea is a place where he passes the majority of his time, though sometimes he doesn't catch enough fish to sell. Genaro says that he gets a lot of sun every day but he is accustomed to it so it doesn't get in the way of his work. The loan that he is seeking is for working capital and the purchase of assets. His dream is to have his own establishment and to have more income.
