At the age of five, Rildo told his mother that he wanted to be a coffee grower. His mother did not believe what he had said, for they were the words of a child. But Rildo did not settle down until he realized his dream. At age 15, he started picking coffee from his uncle's farm and the money he earned, he would ask his mother for custody, always saying that it was to buy a small place. With the passage of time Rildo already had enough money and realized his dream and buy a small farm. Over many years, Rildo worked hard and with great effort conquered a larger farm. In the ranch Segredo Rildo increased its production of coffee and cattle raising. Besides the farm he owns a supermarket where his family works. In the secret farm, his collaborators are always attentive to pick the best and sweetest grains.
