Genaro's story

Genaro is single and has 3 grown children. He is a fisherman who fishes using traditional techniques, and he has been doing this work for 32 years. Because he lives in a coastal area, he takes advantages of the work resources. He started out with a small amount of his own capital, buying his means of work. Now he is requesting a loan to buy more equipment for his work such as: trammel nets, panga (wooden) boats, and a marine motor.
