Genaro is a member of the group called La Colmena (Beehive), located in the city of Samana. This is his seventh loan, which he will use to improve his house. He has had his business for over five years, started from his savings.

After his last loan, which he invested in his business, Genaro realised the need to improve his home, and with his business profits he began this renovation. He now needs to construct the roof, for which he is requesting this loan to buy cement and other necessary materials. The other members of his group are recommending him for a housing loan to finish the house construction.

Esperanza Internacional runs a programme for their good clients who are reliable in paying back their loans, who have fulfilled the commitment to grow their business and who have shown fidelity in their groups. This allows them to take out a loan to improve the structure of their house at the same time as running their business and attending their group meetings.

Genaro, a married man with seven children, is a pastor in his community church; he is also a micro entrepreneur conducting miscellaneous product sales. Genaro thanks God, Esperanza Internacional and all of you for this opportunity. In his name and that of his family he thanks all of you for your support!
