Family Story:

Arlet is originally from Veracruz, but moved to Ensenada 8 years ago. It was here, 6 years ago, when she met her husband Jose Angel and when they started living together. For their first 3 years together, they lived with Jose Angel's mother. It was during that time that they had their first child. After those first 3 years, Jose's mother left and let them use her home. Jose Angel has always had a very low salary from working in the fields. One year ago, they decided to buy a piece of land on credit and have something better for their children. They continue to make payments each month on their land. Jose and Arlet have not been able to build a home on their land. They have always struggled economically and because Jose didn't study, there aren't other options for where he can work, other than in the fields. Jose and Arlet have also struggled in their marriage due to the difficult times they've gone through and they separated for a very short time. Jose Angel decided that was not what he wanted and went to Arlet asking for her forgiveness and to come home. Arlet forgave him and they got back together and have continued to work through things together. For the past year they have lived in a small trailer that they have rented from his mom. They are ready to have a place they can call home.
