Hace algunos años atrás se dedica al arado de la tierra; con ayuda de dos toros que tiene y le facilitan en este trabajo; por ello procura darles una buena alimentación para que estén saludables y fuerte. Al ver la rentabilidad que le genera la agricultura, ha decidido tener dos toros más, de esa manera puede dinamizar su trabajo. Obidio desde que era muy pequeño le enseñaron trabajar la tierra y desde entonces le apasiona su trabajo; todos los días le dedica un poco de su tiempo al cultivo de papa, arveja y habas; los que después vende en el mercado central de su ciudad y en temporadas de mayor cosecha vienen los mismos comerciantes a su terreno de cultivo para negociar los frutos que le brindan la tierra. Pero lo que le disgusta son las temporadas de sequía; donde tiene pérdidas de sus sembríos. Dentro de un año construirá su propia casa, ya que desea darle una mejor calidad de vida a su familia. Él pertenece al banco comunal “Progresistas de Chiras”, y este es el quinto crédito con MFP, donde le gusta mucho compartir experiencias con los integrantes de su banco comunal. Con el crédito solicitado comprará 3 toros, con los cuales trabajará en el arado de la tierra.
