Family Story:

Ángeles is 28 years old, she is from Sinaloa. She is a single mom with one kid. Christopher is 9 years old and in 3rd grade in elementary school.

Ángeles has been a single mom for 8 years. The father of her son was a drug addict who refused to work or support his family. In the time they lived together they used to be in her mother in law house. Because her husband refused to work her mother in law was the one working and sustaining the family. Ángeles decided she didn’t want that kind of live and left her husband and went back to live with her mom. While living with her mom, she encouraged Ángeles to find a property and buy it with a credit.

Some time later she met another man who help her to build a small room in the property she bought. They started a relationship, but it didn’t work because he was very jealous and violent.

Ángeles now lives in her property, in a small room made with wood scraps in bad shape and with pieces of wood and tarp as a roof. Recently the house just behind hers caught on fire and the fire spread to her house doing some damage to the already beat-up house. The grandmother of her son, his ex-husband mom is living with them too. They are working hard together to raise Christopher.
