Rudy (31) and his wife, Kimberly (32), are the happy owners of a new Habitat home in San Lucas Sacatepéquez. Rudy works in a spare parts store and Kimberly in the public health sector.
Before partnering with Habitat Guatemala to build their home, the couple used to live with Kimberly’s mom, “It was a project that we had before getting married, we did some research in other places but, it was beyond our budget,” says Kimberly. The couple found out about Habitat through facebook and a coworker that is also an owner of a Habitat home. After doing some research they decided it was time to invest in a place for their own!
Regarding to COVID-19 pandemic, Kimberly mentions, “This quarantine time has helped us to get to know each other better. We had small different projects for our home too, the garden was one of them. Rudy enjoys to work with wood, so he made some furniture.”
About the time shared with the volunteers Kimberly recalls, “They were all hard workers! We made a lot of progress with the construction process thanks to their help. They welcomed us with a big smile every time we came!”
She finishes by sharing a message to the volunteers, “Thank you, may all of you receive our gratitude! You are also a part of this home, I hope you are well and safe.”
