Family Story:

Francisca moved from Oaxaca to Ensenada when she was younger, searching for a better job.  She met Jose at a party and eventually they began a relationship together 12 years ago.  Since then, they struggled to have a baby.  After trying different treatments, they finally had a baby whom they named Ricardo. The doctors have told her that she won’t be able to have any more children.
Jose works packing vegetables.  He’s in charge of the staff and making sure they all have the necessary tools for working.  Francisca doesn’t work.  She’s dedicated to her home and taking care of Ricardo. They bought a property and they finished paying for it about 4 years ago.  They have a small house made out of wood and tarps. They haven’t been able to build a better house because they don’t have the money for it.
