Family Story:

Maria Elena is originally from Oaxaca, but came to Ensenada 18 years ago due to work and money. She came with a daughter she had while in Oaxaca. After coming here, she got together with a man and they had 3 children. They separated and he was never responsible for his kids. Elena had to work in the fields in order to take care of her children. Elena met another man and they have been together 9 years. They bought land together and built a house from scrap wood and tarps. Elena and Francisco both work in the fields but their salary is low. and they are unable to do more. This family needs a house because the youngest daughter is sick often due to the living conditions they're in, and they are unable to make rent payments in order to move.
