Family Story:

Horacio and Maria are originally from Tabasco, in the south of Mexico. They decided to move to Ensenada because in Tabasco there is a lot of crime. Horacio sold corn on the street and was threatened that if he did not pay a fee for selling on the street those threatening him would kill a member of his family. So they were scared and moved to Ensenada to feel safer. They had some savings which they used to buy a small plot of land here in Ensenada. But they moved in with his brother. His brother received a home from YWAM, so he donated his old home to Horacio and his family. This is where they currently live. They have 3 children, aged 14,10 and 2. Here Horacio is working in a factory and Maria looks after the kids. The house they are living in is very small, 10 feet by 10 feet and is in bad conditions - the walls have hols, the floor is dirt and the roof is a tarp. Horacio earns 1100 pesos each week and with this they have to cover all their household expenses and the schooling for their children.
