He did not continue studying because there was no school above this grade in his community. The closest school was very far from his house and his parents did not have resources to send him to school farther away.

He works as a stocker for one week and the other week he helps his father in the greenhouse growing flowers. His sells these flowers in the wholesale food market in Zitacuaro. He has been doing this for 4 years and his father taught him to grow these flowers. Crisanto is married to Susana, who works as a maid and is also growing flowers. From the profits he makes he will save some money to purchase the things his wife needs in order to give her a better quality life. Crisanto's problem is that due to the recent frost in his community many flowers got frost burnt. As a consequence he lost many flowers and his flower income. He does not have any money to re-invest to grow more flowers. A loan from World Vision will benefit Crisanto because he could use it to purchase a piece of land where he can establish his own greenhouse. His father lends him the greenhouse he uses right now. Crisanto’s goal in the future is to produce flowers and sell the flowers in other communities and eventually sell them in Mexico City.
