The Soto Family

The Soto family live in the outskirts of Antigua. Angelica is a nurse and her husband, Ruben, owns a bakery. Their three children are 19, 13, and 12 and are in school. Before building their home with Habitat Guatemala, they rented  in the local area. “We decided to build our own home because we were renting and not investing in our own family.”, Angelica says. “I inherited the land from my father and we were able to use that to build our house. Our rent was higher than our monthly mortgage so now we are able to save more every month as well. I’m so happy to be in my own home!”
