Luis lives with his wife María and their baby Antonio (2) in their new Habitat home in Alotenango, Sacatepéquez. Luis works in a fast food restaurant while María takes care of Antonio and the house.
They used to live with Luis parents, in one room with not enough space for their own. That is why when they learned about Habitat Guatemala’s programs, they knew that this was a way to make their dream a reality. Their primary motivation to build a new home was to have a stable place to live and enough space for their growing family.
When Luis and María start talking about how they feel in their new home, their joy is obvious. “We feel happy, more comfortable, calm and free in our own space!” Luis continues; “we would like to add a garden and a fence around the house in the future.”
Luis works on a night shift, that is why on his free time, they enjoy playing with Antonio and watching tv as a family!
The family has a message they would like to share with the volunteers who helped them build their home, “Thank you for your support! May God bless you. We hope everybody is doing great.”
