Family Story:

Nieves is from Oaxaca.  She moved to Ensenada and got together with a man who is the father of her three children.  More than a year ago she left the man because he had been abusing her and her children and was with another woman. Failing to find a place to live in, Nieves moved in with her mother for a year until she finally found a property which she’s currently paying off. Nieves works on the field cutting vegetables from Monday to Saturday.  The little she earns she uses it for her family’s basic needs. Sometimes the money is not enough to cover all their expenses and make the land payment. The room that Nieves and her kids live in is made out of pieces of cardboard covered with tarps to try to keep the kids from getting sick.  They children all sleep on the only bed they have, while Nieves sleeps on the floor.  Their desire is to have a proper home where they could live safe and comfortably as a family.
