What attracted you to work for Heifer?
The overall harmony between what I have always done and the work, partnerships and strategic plan of Heifer Brazil-Argentina.
What has been the most memorable experience you have had while working for Heifer?
I participated in a bazaar put on by the Puna Network, an organization of the people of Puna and Quebrada in the province of Jujuy in northern Argentina. The bazaar of La Laugunilla is more than 4,000 meters above sea level. I was able to support, participate in and serve in an advisory capacity for this event with more than 500 people from families and communities in this area, sharing education and experience, combined bartering or trading seeds, food and other genetic materials that families need. It was very interesting, intense and educational for me.
My education includes: Agronomy Engineering, specializing in Agroecology.
My hobbies include: I like to read, take care of my family’s organic garden, play with my two children, cook for family and friends, travel and meet with friends to joke and laugh a lot.
My family consists of: Caio and Arthur, my children, and Eliziana, my wife.
Something about me that you might not know: I like metaphysics, spirituality and related topics. I love to read poetry and I write some, which I keep secret.
What is the best thing about working at Heifer Peru?
There are at least two best things:
• the opportunity to participate in the beautiful work and partnerships that
build the program.
• living and working with a team of people who are highly capable, special
