Cristhian's story

Christian is 44 years old, he is married and has 2 children. He, alongside with his wife, makes and sells corn and cheese breads (chipas). Sometimes he sells his products with his car going throughout all the region of Cordillera. In his house he has a stand from where he sells his chipas and in he makes very good sales because he is located in a well travelled area. He learned his trade from his parents and today he runs his own business, and he has been running the business for the past 12 years. He and his wife share the duties. Making chipas is a family heritage. Their stand bears a very unique look because when clients purchase chipas they can also see them being made. The stand is large and very importantly, it is very clean.
