Florencio is 21 years old and Martha is 20 years old, both come from Oaxaca. They have a daughter Evelyn Grisel who is 2 years old.
Florencio and Martha decided to leave their city and families to look for better opportunities in Ensenada. In their home city the work situation is really bad and they have almost no way to get a better life.
When they arrived to Ensenada they were renting an apartment for some time, but with a lot of hard work they were able to save enough money to give the first payment of a property. They built a small room with wood scraps, cardboard and tarp there and moved in to stop paying rent.
Florencio works in data capture in a vegetables company earning around $1,300 pesos per week (Around 74 dlls), which many times is not enough for the property payments plus the family needs. The property has no service, including water and electricity which means they pay extra to obtain them. Martha is not working right now as she decided to take care of her daughter and home.
Even with all the hardships they had face, they have been able to move on and they work hard every day on order to give their daughter the best they can. They hope that someday they can have a real home, a place where they can feel safe, where they can be rise her daughter and a place that make them feel like working hard really show results.
