Genaro Carlos's story

El señor Genaro is 53 years old with adult children. He works primarily in making and selling costumes used during Carnival. He has his own workshop that is located in the zone La LLampu in the city of La Paz. He makes a variety of costumes for all occasions. This is his first loan. He is going to use it to purchase fabric on wholesale in order to improve his production because he has entered a season of high demand and he needs to finish orders. Genaro is a hard working person who wants to get ahead and improve his quality of life. In the photo, Genaro appears with his wife.
