Fundación Génesis Empresarial is an organization renowned for its work in responsible financial inclusion through the implementation of a business model aimed at achieving social impact for its clients through different financial products.

With support from IDB Invest, Fundación Génesis Empresarial strengthened its operation, bringing rural financing to numerous agricultural value chains in Guatemala. By mid-2022, Génesis Empresarial had benefited more than 17,000 entrepreneurs who own agricultural microbusinesses. This success story illustrates how commitment, innovation and technology can improve people’s lives.

Thanks to the working capital granted and the measures adopted, farmers have had access to sell their products under alliances with corporations from the food industry, generating continued income for their families and moving forward on their “Development Path” away from poverty.
