Family Story:

Noe and Erendida are both from different states in southern Mexico. They came to Ensenada in search of better lives and job opportunities. When Noe met Erendida, she had 2 daughters from a previous relationship, Juaquina and Erendida. Noe had previously worked as a day laborer, travelling from place toplace completing jobs, even working in the fields. In 2008 Noe had a terrible accident while travelling by train that left him handicapped. The train ran him over; he lost a leg and a part of his arm. After the incident, it was very difficult for him to find a job. He decided to sell candy in the streets and he earns around $54 dlls a week. Erendida stays home to care for their house and children; the girls attend school. Noe and Erendida  want the best for their family and have saved money to begin paying their land. They live in very bad conditions in a very small trailer.
