Family Story:

Maria is from Oaxaca. She came to Ensenada with her family when she was 8 years old. Once she finished grade school, she dropped out and started working. Her now sister-in-law had invited her to church and that is how she met her husband, Juan Francisco. Juan is originally from Guanajuato and he was also brought to Ensenada at a young age when his family moved here. Juan and Maria dated for 3 years before moving in together and making a life together. They bought a piece of land on credit, the land they are currently living on and continue to pay off. They have a daughter named Michell who is 5 years old and in kindergarten. Michell was born premature and has had many struggles to overcome and gets sick easily. Michell has “strabismus” and will need an eye operation before she turns 10. Michell still has 5 years, but the surgery will cost them upwards of $1700 US dollars. Maria and Juan just don’t have that kind of money, nor the ability to come up with it. They take Michell to the doctor every month, and the consultation cost them about $27 each time. The doctor has warned them that the sooner she can get the surgery the better, as every month that goes by her condition is worsening. Michell uses glasses, but because of her age and eye condition, for one reason or another, she is always needing new lenses. This is also an added expense of theirs. Juan Francisco works as a day laborer and Maria is a stay at home mother who dedicates her time to Michell and the house. They need a house because the room they live in is made up of mostly tarps.

About a year after Jonatan was born, Lisbet and Esteban decided to get a piece of land and were looking for one that they could afford the down payment on and pay the rest over monthly payments.

Family Story:

Donancio is from Oaxaca, and Yaneth is from San Quintin. They met seven years ago in Ensenada. Yaneth has a son named Elias from her first relationship, but the father has never wanted to take responsibility for him. Yaneth provided for her son alone for seven years working in a factory, but now has Donancio’s support. Four years ago they bought land and are continuing to pay it off each month. Donancio works in a packing plant earning around $60 a week, working Monday through Saturday, from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm. Yaneth works cleaning houses, and her son Elias is a middle school student.  They are living in a house that was loaned to them because they haven’t been able to build a house. Their greatest wish is to have a house and to experience the emotion of having their own place to call home.

Family Story:

Rosario and Juan met here in Ensenada. They were dating for around three months when they decided to move in together with Juan´s mom. They had many problems with Juan´s sisters who were rude to Rosario and her son. Due to the difficulties of living with Juan’s family, Rosario told Juan that if he didn't find a piece land or a place for them to live, she was going to leave him. At church Rosario and Juan met a lady that told them about buying a land on credit. That is what they did, and are currently towards paying it off. Their land payment every month is $55. They have been living there for about five months in a little wood shed; half of the room has a concrete floor and the other half has dirt. Rosario doesn´t have a job, she takes care of her son while Juan works as a mason Monday-Saturday from 7am to 6pm, when he has jobs. Although when it's raining, Juan doesn't get work.

Family Story:

Ofelia and Fabian met when they were working at the same factory, after they started dating, they decided to move in together. Ofelia has a 13 year old daughter named María, who is from her first marriage. They separated because María’s dad left to Coahuila Mexico, leaving Ofelia when she was pregnant with Maria, and then never coming back. Because of that, María does not know her biological father. Currently, María sees Fabian as her father; he loves her a lot and treats her as his own. Ofelia and Fabian bought land next to Ofelia´s brother´s house, and built a small wooden house, but it wasn’t done well and leaks a lot. they have already paid the land but when it rains it drips a lot. They have been able to pay off their land and do not owe anything. Ofelia suffers from arthritis and a knee problem, that is why she does not work anymore and receives a small disability income. Fabian works as a self-employed mason and has a salary of $1200 pesos when he has jobs.
