Family Story:

Rosa and Roberto have been living together for 11 years.  They met in Ensenada while they were both looking for jobs.  They have 4 children, therefore she doesn’t work because she takes care of them and also takes them to school.  Roberto works as a builder from 8:00 am to 6:00pm, depending on the day. After renting a house for 2 years, for which they paid $2,000 pesos a month along with the $1,000 pesos for the property they bought on credit for a total of about $175, they decided to stop renting and move to their property where they’ve been living for over a month now.   They built a room with random materials people donated them along with things they bought from second hand stores and they’re soon adding sheet metal around the property.
