Segundo Hermógenes
Segundo, 47, is married and lives with his wife and two children, 16 and 15 years old, in Pucalá district, which is 40 minutes away from the city of Chiclayo.

He has been a beekeeper for the past two years. He tells us that he has been raising bees on lands near the Huaca Rajada arqueological complex (where The Lord of Sipán was found) and he sells the honey in a small commercial complex near the site's museum.

He started this business thanks to training opportunities provided by the Italo-Peruano Fund to residents of the area so that they could earn their living in productive activities, like beekeeping, crafts-making, woodworking, etc.

Segundo wants to increase his production by installing new hives. To do so, however, he needs natural wax panels that will facilitate the bees' work as well as a certain substance that will prevent ants from attacking the hives. He does not have sufficient funds to do so; therefore, he has called upon Edpyme Alternativa requesting a 1500 new sol loan.

His greatest wish is to continue working in order to see his children become professionals. This is his third collaboration with our Institution and he has shown himself to be a punctual and responsible client with respect to repayments.

In the photo, he shows the panels and plates that he needs to fill in order to reach his objective.

Segundo tiene 47 años de edad, es casado y vive junto a su esposa y sus dos hijos de 16 y 15 años en el distrito de Pucalá, ubicado a cuarenta minutos de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Desde hace dos años se dedica a la apicultura. El nos cuenta que viene criando abejas en terrenos cercanos al complejo arqueológico Huaca Rajada (Complejo donde fué encontrado el Señor de Sipán) y vende la miel que recolecta en un pequeño complejo comercial cercano al museo de sitio.

La iniciativa del negocio surgió gracias a una oportunidad de capacitación que diera el fondo Italo – Peruano a los pobladores de la zona para que empezaran a ganarse el sustento haciendo actividades de producción, como por ejemplo apicultura, elaboración de artesanía, trabajos en madera, etc.

Segundo desea ampliar su negocio con la instalación de nuevas colmenas, pero para ello necesita de láminas de cera natural con las cuales pueda facilitar el trabajo a las abejas, así como de un insumo para evitar que las hormigas ataquen las colmenas. El no cuenta con el capital suficiente para comprar lo que necesita por lo que se ha visto en la necesidad de solicitar a Edpyme Alternativa un crédito de 1500 nuevos soles.

Su mayor anhelo es seguir trabajando para ver convertidos a sus hijos en profesionales de éxito. Esta es la tercera vez que trabaja con nuestra Institución y ha demostrado ser un cliente puntual y responsable al momento de asumir sus pagos. En la fotografía nos muestra las láminas y las placas que necesita rellenar para lograr su objetivo.
