We found Juan and Maria living in this small home made of cornstalk.  We were able to construct the home before the rainy season began.  In a home such as theirs the dirt floor slowly turns to mud as the rainy season goes on.  The nights are cold as well and these two things combined is a frequent cause of respiratory illness. Juan is 64 and still works in the fields from dusk to dawn to grow the food that they need to survive. Maria is a housewife and takes care of things at home.  They are very grateful for the provision of this new home and commented that it is so nice to be sleeping in a warm home.
