Cristian Eduardo's story

Cristian is a young man of 23. He lives in the city of Camaná, a city with a warm climate and a varied agriculture, which distinguishes itself by the cultivation of rice and beans. Similarly, fishing is developing, and it beaches are very beautiful. Cristian is a very happy young man, but he is also very responsible, since he works every day as a taxi driver and goes through the streets of his city in search of customers. Cristian can serve about 20 customers a day, and he believes that he is getting ahead in his work because he is very friendly to his customers and is responsible when he drives.

Cristian is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help that they offer him, he will be able to make improvements in the house where he lives, since he will be able to improve the walls and the plumbing and repair the roof of his house. In this way he will have a better home and his family will be able to improve their quality of life. Thus he will continue striving every day to make his great dream a reality: "to have a career and to be a great businessman."
