Family Story:

Viridiana was living with her mother when she found out about these plots of land for sale on credit. She applied for one and begin making payments. A couple months ago she built a structure on the land using pieces of wood given to her by her parents. The father of Jose and Jorge doesn't help them in any way; the other children's father will sometimes help financially. Viridiana works selling beauty products, but doesn't have a stable salary from that. The youngest son, Javier, suffered from a stroke on the right side and was left with a partial paralysis of the right side of his body. He receives therapy, is able to walk, and is getting better little by little. He is able to speak, but not very clear. It is very hard on Viridiana to cover all their household and personal expenses from transportation and food, to Javier's therapy, and payments on their land. Viridiana lives alone with the children and because of that, is unable to have a full-time job. The only support she gets is occasional help from one of the father's and her parents.
