Genaro Deciderio's story

Genaro Deciderio Velásquez is 46 years old. He lives in the El Rodeo neighborhood located in San Juan de la Concepción along with his wife, who helps out with the household expenses. They do not have any children to take care of as theirs are all adults and live in their own homes. Genero´s plans for his family are to improve financially so that he and his wife can have a better life. For the past 16 years he has worked as a farmer and the greatest difficulty has been lack of financing. He started growing crops but lacked supplies and needed the support of an institution in order to be successful. With this loan request he will buy fertilizers and poisons so that he can produce more and be able to sell at a better price which will generate more income for him.
