A loan helped to buy baby chickens and balanced feed for raising them.


Bacilo Segundo's story

Segundo is 67 years old and lives in the San Javier de Cachiví parish of San Lorenzo, Esmeraldas. He and his wife live in a small home that he built through hard work and dedication.

Segundo works in agriculture. His coffee production provides him with the resources needed to cover household expenses.

Segundo wants to take up a business activity he had engaged in several years ago—raising chickens—which he had abandoned due to a lack of resources. Segundo knows that it demands constant work and dedication, but the income he will earn from the sale of chickens will allow him to improve his family's living conditions.

Segundo needs this financing in order to launch this business venture by purchasing baby chickens and balanced feed for them.

He thanks Kiva for the opportunity it provides through financing his business idea. He is certain that it will go very well because he is hard-working and responsible.
