Family Story:

Joel and Brenda are from Michoacan, where Joel worked at a grocery store until he was laid off. It was then very difficult to find a good job. Michoacan is suffering from great economical problems and drug traffickers. His wife Brenda didn't want him to feel pressured to enter into the world of drugs, so they decided it was best to move. They came to Ensenada where Brenda's sister was living. At first they were living with Brenda's sister, but they had a lot problems with that and decided to rent their own place. Joel found a stable job working at a gas station. They rented the house fro a year and a half but found it difficult to be able to keep making the payments on Joel's salary. They stopped renting and found a piece of land to buy on credit. They moved their family to their land where they now live in a small house they made from old pallets.
