Segundo grows food and raises pigs. He is requesting a loan to buy compost, insecticide, fertilizers, urea and fungicides with the objective to improve his produce. He will buy these supplies at the marketplace of Chillanes. His goal is to improve the quality of his plantations. Transportation is a big challenge for him. During his free time, he likes to play sports. The local tradition he likes the most is the carnival.
