A loan of $775 helped to make some improvements to his living room floor and his kitchen roof.

Segundo Saturnino's story

Segundo is 37 years old and is looking to take out his second loan with Kiva's support as his first loan helped him to consolidate his business. He would like to continue improving his family's well-being. Segundo lives with his partner and has one child in his care. He lives in his own home together with his partner and son. Their house is located in the rural part of Tambogrande district, in the north of Peru, though they do have electricity.

Segundo's business activity is raising livestock (sheep and farmyard birds). When the animals have reached an ideal size and weight, he sells them in the local market. In addition, he is also an agricultural technician and works pruning and grafting mango plants on different farms and plots of land. He has more than six years experience in livestock raising and farming. He will use his loan to improve his home.
