Juana Nabora's story

Juana is married and she has three children. She need to expand her house because she has opened a small general store there, and she needs more space as she currently uses the kitchen as a shop. Juana works for a "maquiladora" (a bonded assembly plant set up by a foreign firm near the US border) and her husband works for a company. They want their children to live a better life and by increasing the family earnings they will offer them a better future.
