Ruben and Erika have been together for 7 years now. Ruben works in the fields earning $1,020 pesos per week (Around $54 USD). Erika stays home taking care of their kids and the house.
3 Years ago, they were able to buy their property with a loan. They built a small room with wood and plastic scraps and a tarp. Their house can’t protect them properly from rain, cold or heat. They desire a safer house for their children, a place where their kids don’t have to struggle with the cold at night and the heat during the day.
