Cristhian Hipolito
Cristhian is 24 years old. He lives next-door to his parents, who are farmers and from whom he has learned about hard work, honor and humility. He is very proud of his parents because despite their humility, they have always taught him important lessons. His home is located in the city of Imperial, which is known for it's warm and welcoming climate. There is a lot of agriculture in the area, especially of cotton, corn, bananas and more.

Cristhian used to work with his parents in the fields but then he began working on a different farm, where they grow trees in order to sell the fruit in city markets. He has been working on this farm for 4 years and he usually works 9 hours a day. He thinks he is good at his job because he is very responsible and knowledgeable.

Cristhian is very grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to their help he will be able to complete some repairs on his house, like fixing the roof and buying a kitchen. His parents only cook by campfire and it is a little dangerous. Cristhian will be able to improve his quality of life and continue fighting to achieve his biggest dream: to give his parents a good quality of life and start his own business.
