For the past 5 years, Stonewood has provided funding to build homes in Guatemala for those that could never afford a home of their own. For every home Stonewood builds in Minnesota, one is built in the suburbs of Guatemala city.
Most of the homes built recently have been in the town of Sumpungo, Guatemala. Here’s the story of one of the most recent builds!
The JUÁREZ CRUZ family.
Jeimy and her son Emmanuel Lainez Juarez, 2 years old. She’s is a single mom and the daughter of the local pastor. Jeimy is an entrepreuner and has a small business selling used clothing to her neighbors.
Jeimy’s parents agreed to give her part of the family’s land so she would ask to build a space for herself and her son.
Plumbing, if any, is outdoors.
The homes are built on family land, where ever it might be. Often it is difficult to get to and to build upon.
