Family Story:

Rigoberto and Ana have been married for 5 years and for the first time they have their own property. When they got married, they lived with Ana's mother, rented a house for a while, and for 2 other years they lived with Rigoberto's parents. While living with Rigoberto's family, they were faced with a lot of problems because in that same house there were 4 families living together, they fought with each other all the time.

Because of this, Rigoberto decided to get his family their own place and move out. They bought a small trailer for $482 (they still owe $206 on it), and have lived in it for 7 months now. The trailer is very old and leaks so they had to lay a tarp over the roof.

Rigoberto works in the fields and makes around $62 a weeks. This is used to pay for their food, expenses, land payments, trailer payments, etc. Basically leaving them with nothing to be able to build a home.
