ABOUT THE FAMILY
Originally from Caborca, Jorge Ivan has lived in Puerto Peñasco for the past six years. Mariela has lived in Peñasco all of her life. Jorge and Mariela have been together for two years, and do not have any children. Jorge works as a fisherman, and when work is busy, he can earn up to $100 a week, but the work is inconsistent, and on the low season his earnings are very low. Jorge has been paying for a land lot for almost a year, but his income is not sufficient for them to be able to build a home on their own. They lived for a while with Jorge’s father, but conditions were crowded with little privacy. They began renting a place of their own, and though they enjoy their independence, the rent consumes most of Jorge’s limited income. A house from 1MISSION will give Jorge and Mariela a safe and secure place of their own where they can live independently. It will allow them to focus their resources on meeting their daily needs and help them to work towards a more secure future.
