Meet the Reguan Gil Family, a family of four living in the town of Rancho Alegre, Sumpango, Guatemala. Santos David (29 yrs old) and Ana Gloria (25 yrs old) have two children; David Alexander (6 yrs old), and Yostin Anibal (2 yrs old). Santos works as a mason and earns around Q60 per day ($7.95 per day). The oldest son, David, is in kindergarten and Ana Gloria, the mother, is a stay at home mom.
The Reguan Gil family live on land that measures 8×15 meters which was inherited by Santos’ father. They had been living in a shack built with corrugated metal sheets, plastic, and a dirt floor. They don’t have basic services, and use a latrine for their bathroom. Now they have a safe and solid house to call home.
