Segundo Arturo is 36 years old and married. He lives with his wife and six children in Ventanas canton, in los Ríos province.

The 'Vencedores Unidos' community bank is located in Anchoveta, on the road to La Templanza, in Pueblo Viejo canton. The members of this bank work in short-cycle agriculture, growing corn and rice.

Segundo is a farmer who grows corn and rice. He buys and sells his products in Comercial Peña.

Segundo is requesting this loan to buy seeds, supplies, fertilizers and manure for his crops. The support of this loan will help him to financially cover his needs. He faces challenges in his work such as pests and plant diseases. His dream is to buy a car to transport the products that he harvests.

In his free time, Segundo enjoys reading the Bible.
