Segundo Miguel's story

Segundo is a humble elderly country man who characterizes himself as being jovial and very caring. He lives with his wife and children in the community of Maspaz. His wife works at the household tasks. His children who are adults work in agriculture and help him cover household expenses. At the same time Segundo works ploughing the soil on his land to sow potato seeds and thus continue providing for his family. Due to his elderly age, they do not want to have him work on the crops.

Over time and with his experience caring for various crops he has learnt to work the land in the right way. This is why Segundo wishes to continue to develop his potato growing business and therefore needs more capital to buy fertilizers and to pay for labour. This will result in better potato production which will increase his profitability.
