Evelyn (20) and Miguel (23) are now living in their new Habitat home in the department of Chimaltenango. Miguel works as a salesman and Evelyn is a nurse.
Evelyn and Miguel dated for two years, and when they got engaged they decided it was time to buy a house and start their own family. On January 19th, 2019, they got married and moved into their new home!
Miguel’s mom Doña Juliana, explained that after her son learned about Habitat Guatemala through a local newspaper, both sets of parents sat down with their children and started the application process.
When asked about how they feel with their new home Evelyn says: “We feel very happy and grateful to God and Habitat,” she continues: “In the future, we want to add a garden and a little path to walk on.”
Doña Juliana explains that the entire family treasures all the memories and time shared with the volunteers: “They were of great help and a big blessing. They helped the masons and played with the cousins too!” she continues, “they are really nice people!”
“Every day I thank God for each volunteer that came to help us, may God bless you. Thank you for your support!”
Evelyn shares: “I am very grateful with every volunteer, your help was of big impact and helping finish our house sooner”.
