Family Story:

Emiliano and Reina met while working in the fields and became a couple and started living together. They moved into a room that their boss lent them. They continued to work and started their family. When Reina was unable to continue working, the boss kicked them out of the room because he wanted that both of them were working for in return for the room. When this happened, they needed to now live on the salary of only one person as well as pay the rent each month and find a place they could afford. They decided it was better for them to buy a piece of land on credit and build whatever they could. They have been unable to build a home. They are currently living in one room that was built from pallets. In that room live 8 people, they sleep there and cook there.
