Family Story:

Natalio and Juana are originally from Oaxaca (Southeastern Mexico). They’ve been together for 26 years since their parents arranged their marriage. They had their first child a year after getting married, all while living with Natalio’s parents. Natalio worked in the fields while Juana was home cooking, cleaning and caring for their baby. A year later they had another child in Oaxaca, and then 5 more children joined their family. They have a 7 children total, but 4 are already married and 3 live with them. Patricia is married with a son and they live with her parents, and the two youngest boys. Natalio and Juana moved their family to Ensenada six years ago in search of better jobs and a better life. They have a land of their own which they are still paying off, and that is where they currently live. Due to their lack of finances, they haven’t been able to build a better place to live. Their house now is a small room made out of wood scraps.
