Segundo Cristian
Segundo is a 20-year-old youth who did his primary school studies in Alausí, where he currently lives. Alausí is a canton of the Province of Chimborazo en Ecuador, which is characterized by its stone architecture and flowers that have converted it into a very visited tourist attraction, which in addition has been given the title of a National Heritage Site. Throughout the city, there are various nature spots that are worth visiting for the splendid landscapes they offer. Tourism, agriculture and commercial activity become stronger every day, because the city has a sustained development and its inhabitants have a better quality of life since not all homes have the basic services.
Segundo was born in the countryside where he learned agricultural and livestock activities from his parents. He works for eight hours a day and decided to start this business because his lack of training does not allow him to be employed in the private sector. He will use the loan granted by Fundación Alternativa to purchase pigs that he will raise with the supplies that he will also buy and then sell them in the city. In this way, Segundo aims to increase his income and improve his quality of life.

Segundo es joven de 20 años que realizó sus estudios primarios en Alausí en donde reside actualmente. Alausí es un cantón de la Provincia de Chimborazo en Ecuador la cual se caracteriza por su estructura arquitectónica en piedra y flores que la convirtieron en un atractivo turístico muy visitado y que además le dieron el título de Patrimonio Nacional. A lo largo de la ciudad se encuentran varios sitios naturales que valen la pena ser visitados por el paisaje tan esplendoroso que ofrecen. La actividad turística, la agricultura, el comercio se fortalecen cada día para que la ciudad tenga un desarrollo sostenido y que sus habitantes tengan una mejor calidad de vida ya que no todas las viviendas cuentan con todos los servicios básicos.
Segundo nació en el campo donde aprendió el oficio de la agricultura y ganadería gracias a sus padres. Dedica a esta actividad 8 horas diarias y decidió emprender en esta actividad ya que la falta de capacitación no le permitían emplearse en el sector privado. Utilizará el crédito otorgado por Fundación Alternativa en la compra de cerdos los cuales criará con insumos que también comprará y de esta forma los comercializará en la ciudad. Así, Segundo pretende obtener mayores ingresos y mejorar su calidad de vida.
