A loan helped to buy a corn shelling machine.


Segundo Rodrigo's story

Segundo is 57 years old and lives with his family in Atuntaqui in Imbabura Province. He works in agriculture, mostly growing tomatoes and corn. This business has allowed him to generate income and to financially contribute to his household.

Segundo is an enterprising person and is requesting a loan to buy a corn shelling machine, which he will put up for rent in the area where he lives. This will generate extra income on top of his farming business.

Segundo appreciates Kiva's support and trust because it will allow him to have more income so that he can support his family and improve their standard of living.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Mariana Sanchis.
