Juana Huete begins her day by waking up at the break of dawn, seven days a-week to start making dough for the tortillas.  Every morning she makes 150 tortillas to sell in-time for breakfast.  In 2008, Juana opened up a portion of her home as a store to sell tortillas, curds and juices from the outside. On average she makes $110 per month from her store.
















Juana shares her home with her son, Alessio Antonio Lazo, who is 20 years old and is a construction worker whenever he finds projects. Juana is the sole provider for her twin granddaughters, Danaliet and Danaseli, both 13 years old. The mother of the twins, Juana’s daughter, abandoned them as babies and Juana has taken care of them ever since.

















Juana’s house is made of old scrap wood and has dirt floors. During the rainy season, the house floods and all of their belongings get soaked.  The roof consists of rusty zinc with doors and windows made of boards. The home does not have running water or a bathroom.
