The Landaverde Funez Family
Erica (32) and Eduar (29) met 10 years ago. They have two cute children named Eduar Jr., (4) and Jorge, (3). Erica grew up with her mom and her 3 siblings.

Once she married Eduar, she started working at a clothing store. She worked for five years until she got pregnant with her first baby. Eduar was raised by his mom as his dad passed away when he was just 8 years old. Eduar had a harder childhood. He grew up selling tortillas, tamales, pasteles or anything his mom cooked. His mom had to work very hard so she could support Eduar and her 12 other children by herself. Currently, Eduar works at a zip-line company in the maintenance area. Eduar and Erica’s biggest dream is to work as hard as they can, so their children can have a decent life with the best education, best jobs and the best opportunities.
