Before partnering with Habitat Guatemala to build their new house. The family used to live in an old house that belonged to Pedro’s parents. “The old house was very small, we did not have enough space for Abigail to play and Josías to grow, the kitchen was built a side just with metal sheets.”
Beberly explains they learned about Habitat Guatemala’s programs through several neighbors that have built their home. After doing some research, they decided it was time to invest in a space of their own.
When asked how they feel with their new home, Beberly answers, “We feel very happy with it!” she continues, “we would like to have a big garden, also a henhouse in the future.”
When asked about the time shared with the volunteers Beberly recalls, “We enjoyed the time spent with them, it was a wonderful experience,” she continues,”Thank you all for your time, for your support. You are a part of this home now.”
