Segundo Uldarico's story

Segundo, 62, lives in the city of Camaná, in the district of Ocoña, with his wife and two children, who he loves and are his main motivation in life. He is a very kind, hard-working, enthusiastic person who makes every effort, along with his wife, to provide for his family. Thanks to his desire to get ahead, Segundo was able to get a technical farming degree and in his free time he enjoys playing soccer with his children and friends. Sometimes he makes a delicious Arroz Chaufa (fried rice) to share with famiy.

On his own initiative and with much hard work and dedication, Segundo works in agriculture and has a small patch of land where he grows beans. He works every day, around ten hours, on his field chores from the early morning hours. He is content and believes things are going well for him because of his experience and kindness to others.

Segundo is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to you he will be able to buy fertilizer and hire workers at crop harvest time. This will allow Segundo to continue working and striving toward his goal of seeing his children become good professionals.
