Cristian's story

Cristian lives in the warm city of Aguaytia which is known for its warm climate and beautiful flora and fauna. He is 29 years old and lives together with his partner and their three children who he adores and are his motivation to fight every day because they are the best gift God could have given him. Cristian only studied until the fifth year of secondary school because he could not afford to continue, but he would have liked to have studied agricultural engineering.

With a lot of effort and saving, Cristian was able to start his business selling soft drinks and beers. He works there around ten hours a day and has about ten customers a day. He believes that the business is going well because he is friendly with customers and he works very hard.

Cristian is very thankful to the Kiva lenders since thanks to their help he will be able to purchase materials to remodel his business, including paint, shelves, tables, seats, and other items. This will allow him to provide a better environment and more comfort for his customers so that he can increase his income and continue working toward his ultimate dream of owning his own home.
