Family Story:

Erick and Esther have been married for 5 years. From the beginning they rented a home but for Erick it was very hard to keep paying rent as his salary is very small. Esther's mother upon seeing their situation invited them to live with her, but her house is small and they slept in the kitchen. As time went on, these living conditions got harder and they began to have problems. . They lived two years and a half until they decided to buy some land on credit and build a house from second hand materials. Erick and Esther have a beautiful girl, Eliza, who is now 4 years old. Esther fell pregnant again but sadly lost the baby and they are trying to move forward. Erick and Esther work in a packing factory where their salary is 140 pesos daily and with this they pay off their land and try to cover all their home expenses. They asked for help with their home because for them it is hard to buy the materials and they don't have much time to build.
