Family Story:

Agustin and Liria are originally from Southern Mexico. They are a young family with only their one year old daughter, Janet. Agustin and Liria work in the fields packing vegetables. Their salary is not enough for them to be able to build a home. Like many other families, they came to Ensenada looking for work and a better way of life. They met two years ago and starting dating. They moved in with Liria’s uncle for their first year together and had their first child. After Janet was born, they decided to move out. The uncle’s house was very small and they wanted a place of their own where they could start raising their family. They bought land on credit and made a small room out of wood and tarps, they don’t have any kind of floor, it is just dirt. They would like to have a home to be able to give their daughter the best future possible, and for her to grow in a healthy environment.
