Family Story:

Luis and Veronica met where they worked and one day decided they wanted to start a relationship. They were renting a place to live and were paying $800pesos ($47 appx. USD) A while after the birth of their first child, when Derian was 1 year old and Veronica was newly pregnant, they decided to move to another place that was cheaper, because they already didn’t earn enough money to cover all their expenses. They went to live in a small trailer where they paid $500pesos ($30 appx. USD) a month. They tarted looking for a piece of land to buy, found one, and began to make payments on it. They didn’t move there right away because the area had no one living close to where their land is and they felt it was not safe to live there alone with their 2 children.

A few months ago they began to live on the land in a house made of pallets that Luis got as a gift from his employer. The inside of the house is lined with the cardboard that comes with the pallets.

This family is very much in need of a home and wanting to provide a better life for their children.
