Sofia came to Ensenada with her two children two years ago. She is a single mom, her previous husband left her for another woman. She works cleaning a house, three days per week earning $600 pesos per week (Around 30 USD). The days she is not cleaning, she works selling yogurt that she makes.
Sofia already has a property. Her sister made most of the payments and gave it to her and she made the last payments. The property came with a small wood room but the previous owner told her it's only temporary, and that she will need a new one because the wood is in really bad shape and it is not safe.
