Jairo Gómez – HFH Canada – Sue Sweet

Jairo, his girlfriend, Vilma are the proud owners of a brand new Habitat house, located in Chimaltenango. Jairo works as a sales man and Vilma in a gym.

When we visited the family, they could not be present because of work, so his mother Eusebia and sister Janeth, welcomed us to chat.

Before partnering with Habitat Guatemala, Karina mentions that Jairo used to live in the family house, with them and four more relatives. Karina explains that they learned about Habitat Guatemala’s programs through a friend. After doing some research, they decided it was time to invest in a space of their own, get married and start a family of their own in their home.

When asked how they feel with their new home, Karina answers, “Jairo feels very happy, happy to have his house, to start his family,” she continues, “in the future, he would like to add more details to it.”

She finishes by sharing a message to the volunteers: “Thank you all for your support, the house is very pretty. May God bless you.”
