Norma, who is 54 years old and illiterate, shares her home with her brother Juan Sanchez, daughter Jenny Vallecillo and her adopted daughter Candida Corea.  Jenny is the only member of the family who has a job and spends her days working as a school teacher for a monthly wage of $198. Under that income, the family lives daily on $1.20 per person.

Before Giveback Homes, Norma and her family lived in a little old wood house that had many leaks when it rained and a dirt floor. Juan slept in the living room while Norma, Candida and Jenny all slept together. While the house possessed electricity, a latrine and potable water, it was only for 2 days a week. Now Norma’s new home is ready to provide her and her family a safe place to live.
