Daughter: Juana Elvira | 22 | No Education

Son: Miguel Antonio | 16 | 1yr (Education)

Notes: None of the family members can read or write. Their parents taught them that if they wanted to eat they had to work hard. Hence Juana and Miguel never had the opportunity to go to school. They actually work in the fields as farmers, planting coffee for land-owning farmers. The family does not make very much money. They use the little money they make to meet their needs and obtain food to eat.
