He is a member of the Manzanapamba community bank, which is made up of 10 members from the same community who work in agriculture. It is located 30 minutes from the operations office in Guaranda.

Segundo is a farmer. He plants potatoes. He also sells milk. He is requesting this loan to purchase a cow to increase his milk production. He makes purchases in Riobamba every two weeks and makes sales every six months in Guaranda. His goal is to improve his financial possibilities and buy a box to make pressed cheeses.
