Family Story:

  Miriam is from Ensenada and has always lived in poverty.  When she was 17 years old she got together with her boyfriend.  They lasted 4 years and when Miriam was 7 months pregnant with their first child, their relationship hit a rough patch and they got separated.  She had to stop studying and started working while her mother took care of their child.  With help from her parents she was able to buy the trailer she’s living in today.   

 She later got together with her current boyfriend and had another child.  They’re living in the trailer. When it rains, water enters the house through the roof.  Miriam and her family need a new house so that her kids can grow up in an actual house where they won’t have to worry about the water situation which causes the children to be sick.
