Jose Gabriel's story

Jose Gabriel is married and he has 3 children who are still economically depending on him, as they are still studying. He is an engineer working for a maquiladora (foreign-owned assembly plants) of his community, and he has always been concerned about providing his family with a loving household, while paying for all the necessities of his house. He dreams of enjoying stable wealth when he and his wife will be old, and little by little he has been building what is now their home. They live in public housing, which are generally very small solutions; he has enlarged it with great efforts in order to give his children their own space. The roof of his house is about to collapse and he wants to have it repaired as the raining season is approaching and humidity invades his house. He is grateful fort the support he will receive.
