Up until recently Roxana and her family lived in the cornstalk and plastic home pictured here.  With a dirt floor her young children were always getting sick and in the rainy season things were always worse when the floor turned to mud.
 
 Roxana’s husband works in agriculture and works at a coffee plantation cutting coffee beans when there is work.  Much of the year he is unemployed and he struggles with addiction to alcohol as well. Neither Roxana or her husband ever studied even in elementary school and so their prospects for stable employment are not good.
 
 When they received the news that we were going to construct a new home for them they felt very happy because they knew it would not be long until they could sleep in a warm and dry home of their own.  When we came to take the final photos the happiness of the new home was reflected in the face of Roxana because she no longer had the problems of the rainy season and her children were sleeping warm and more comfortable in a larger space.
