HIPOLITA IS THE DAUGHTER OF EMILIA CORDERO, ANOTHER FAMILY THAT WAS ONCE SERVED BY SERVANTS IN GUATEMALA.

Hipolita (pronounced Eepolita) lives with her son Jamilton (pronounced Hamilton) and her daughter Fabiola. In 2012, Fabiola dropped out of school in order to work 6 days a week at the market to support the family and make sure Jamilton could continue going to school. Thankfully, Fabiola has received some sponsorship for the school through the Serving At-Risk Families ministry so that she could continue in her studies. However, because of her family’s economic situation, she decided to stop going to school and work instead. Eventually, she got depressed about the situation at home and left, living in the streets for a while and then moved in with her father on the coast. It didn’t turn out to be much better so she returned to live with her mom.

Hipolita is illiterate

and for a long time it has been difficult for her to find work, but now finds jobs cleaning houses for people or cooking.  She has finally found a long-term steady job caring for a family’s house every day while they are at work.

Fabiola has in interest in hairstyling

Currently, she is looking for a job at a hair salon and contemplating taking a few trade school courses to learn more!

Jamilton works as a helper in construction,

fulfilling many jobs with his skills in concrete work. Jamilton also has his own family: his son Ricardo Demetrio who he had with his girlfriend Evelyn.
