Family Story:

Jose and Maritza have been married for 5 years. Jose is from Guadalajara and maritza is from Oaxaca. The first 2 years of their marriage they lived in the home of Maritza's mother and soon after someone loaned them a trailer so they could live there. But they had an opportunity to buy some land on credit close to where they lived, so they decided to buy it. They had to sell their car to make the down payment. So when they had made the down payment they moved there and took the loaned trailer with them, and this is where they live currently. Recently, the owner of the trailer has asked for it back. When Jose and Maritza found out they were soon recieving a Home of Hope they were very happy! They have two children, Horeb is one and Mateo is 4 months. Jose works as a gardener and Maria looks after the children. Jose earns 1200 pesos per week and this is not enough to build a room along with paying off the land each month.
