Family Story:

Francisco and Erika met when they were 16 in Sinaloa and that is when they decided to get together. After 3 months, they were pregnant. After their son was born, that is when things got hard and they decided to move to Ensenada. Their family used to live here and so they all decided to return. After arriving, they rented a couple rooms for $25 a month. They had no space though and decided to get land and have their own place. They got land and there they built the house where they currently live. Francisco works, and Erika's mother helps them to pay the land. Erika takes care of her son and her 6 year old little brother. Erika and Francisco's son struggles with bronchitis and is frequently in the hospital because of it. Their house has no door and doesn't protect against the wind and dust, making it harder on their son to be well. They both dropped out of school at a young age. Francisco completed elementary and Erika completed Jr High. It is hard for them to find good jobs with higher salaries because of this. Erika's mom lives with them and isn't in the best health right now. She suffers from high blood pressure and diabetes. Erika's 6 year old brother is in school.
