The Win family lives in Myanmar. Ye Aung is 19 years old and is a rickshaw puller. His wife Nwe Nwe is 30 years old and they live with 5 family members in a rented 1-bedroom house. They started living in the house 7 years ago when their last place was destroyed by floods, but the danger of flooding still remains. Their favorite item in the house is the stove. They dream of one day being able to buy their own house.

The Win family lives in Myanmar. Ye Aung is 19 years old and is a rickshaw puller. His wife Nwe Nwe is 30 years old and is a housewife. They live with Nwe Nwe’s daughters from a previous marriage, Thazin Khang, 15 years old, who works as a waitress, Thin Nenda, 10 years old, who works as a dishwasher and Poe Poe, 8 years old. They also live with their 2 sons; That Lin Aung, 5 years old, and That Tun Aung, 3 years old. The family works for a total of 235 hours/week. They also get food in exchange for work. The Win family lives in a rented single-bedroom house. They've been living there for the past 7 years. They don’t like that the house is in an area that is prone to flooding but they had to move here after their village was destroyed by floods. The house has no electricity and the toilet, which is public, is outside the house. The family has to buy all their food, which cost them about 90% of their income. It takes 30 minutes to collect safe drinking water and come back. They use charcoal fuel for cooking. Nwe Nwe spends 21 hours a week collecting water and another 21 hours a week doing housework. The Win family hardly saves any money because most of it is spent on food. They hope that one day they will be able to fulfill their dream of buying a house.
