Family Story:

Israel and Rocio have been married for 14 years. For about Roadwire10 years they were renting in different places, paying up to $100 a month. They got to the point where they couldn’t do that anymore. Rocio’s mother donated a piece of land, which is where they currently live. They have a 14 year old son who is a student, and Rocio also cares for her mother full-time. Rocio’s mother has a small room on the property and that is also where Rocio cooks as she doesn’t have a stove of her own. Israel and Rocio have a small place that they made of old wood that was given to them and the floor is just dirt. They only have one bed which is a full size mattress where Israel, Rocio and their son all sleep together; except for the times Juan goes and stays with his grandma. Israel works in a factory where he has a salary of $65 a week. Rocio cares for her son and her mother, who is completely dependent on them. They are unable to build themselves a proper home on Israel’s income alone.
