The Poma family lives in Bolivia. Juan is 43 years old and works as a carpenter. He lives with his wife Eulogia, 42 years old, and 5 children in a 2-bedroom house. They own the house and are living here because it’s better for their children. The house has a nice scenic view, although it’s location is on a dangerous hill. The next big thing they plan on buying is construction material to build better walls for their house. Their favorite item in the house is the TV, and they dream of buying a refrigerator for their household.

The Poma family lives in Bolivia. Juan is a carpenter. He is 43 years old and works 42 hours per week to support his wife, Eulogia, and their 5 children. Their oldest son, Franklin, is 18 years old and is serving in the military. Juan works for around 42 hours/week. The family lives in a 2-bedroom home that they built two years ago. Although the home sits on a dangerous hill, they enjoy the view it provides, as well as the security of owning a home. Electricity is stable, and the food is cooked on natural gas appliances. The family purchases all of its food, using about 80% of Juan's income. Safe drinking water and toilet facilities are available in the yard. Juan has never been on a vacation, he has travelled as far as the Bolivian border. His favorite possession is the television, and would like to soon purchase better walls for their home. His dream is to purchase a refrigerator.
