VAN BUREN, Calif.
— Gloria’s renovations can be done in just three months with no experience at all, and you can pay her $1,500,000.
But the home, where she lives with her parents, is worth more than that.
Gloria’s mother, Barbara Ann, bought it with the hope of starting a new life, but now Gloria is in a state of limbo.
Gloria was born in Puerto Rico, and her parents are legally living in the U.S. as a couple.
Gloria has worked as a waitress at a local bar, but she didn’t go to college because her mother was struggling to pay her rent.
Gloria is now in her 20s, living in a trailer she built herself.
Her mother had her work for the past few years, and she paid $150 a month for the house.
But now Gloria says she needs help to pay the mortgage.
“I think she owes me $500 a month,” Gloria told Newsweek.
Gloria, who has two older brothers and a younger sister, said she hopes to start a new job and save enough money to buy a home.
But she’s not certain if she will.
“We’re really struggling,” Gloria said.
Gloria also told Newsweek that she has no idea what to do with her inheritance.
Gloria and her family are living with her mother and her father, both of whom are undocumented immigrants from El Salvador, in a house she built with her sister.
The house was built in 1997, before President Bill Clinton’s immigration reforms.
But Gloria’s father, Miguel Guzmán Guzman, and his wife, Joaquin, live in the United States without documentation, meaning they don’t qualify for the mortgage, according to Newsweek.
In addition, Guzman is the only one who has a Social Security number.
The couple paid $500,0000 in 2008, according the Federal Housing Finance Agency.
Gloria said her mother’s situation is a “fiasco.”
Gloria has been living in her home with her father since 2000.
She’s worried that the money her mother owes her will be used to pay off her debt.
Gloria says her mother didn’t work as a bartender because she was too poor.
But Guzman and Guzman’s wife, Josefina Sánchez, are also undocumented.
Guzman said his wife had a good time when they lived together, but they have now been living together for about a year.
“She’s a good woman,” Guzman told Newsweek, adding that his wife is “very nice.”
Gloria says they don: pay for the rent, buy a new home, and take care of their two younger brothers and sisters.
“They don’t have any money,” she said.
“And they don, and they have nothing.”
The Sánches have lived in the house for years, but it wasn’t until a recent eviction that Gloria was able to get a new place.
“It’s really sad, but we had to move because it’s illegal,” she told Newsweek in a video message.
Gloria hasn’t been able to find a job since moving into the trailer, which is made out of reclaimed wood, but her father is still paying the rent.
“There’s nothing left for us,” Gloria says.
Gloria told her mother that she would pay off the mortgage if she could get her $500 monthly payments.
But her mother said she can’t do it, as she hasn’t worked in seven years.
She said she doesn’t have enough money.
Gloria tried to call her sister in El Salvador who lives in San Diego, but Gloria couldn’t reach her.
“The phone went dead,” Gloria recalled, “and the phone didn’t ring.”
Gloria said she was afraid that her mother would have a hard time paying her bills because she’s still in the country illegally.
“If I was in the middle of my life, it would be like a death sentence,” Gloria added.
But despite all the hardships she has been through, Gloria says that she is still determined to live a good life for her children.
“My kids are my life,” she says.
“What can I say?
They’re my future.”
Gloria is hoping to start work soon, and if she does, she will likely get a job in the field.
She is also considering becoming a nurse.
“Maybe one day I’ll become a nurse,” Gloria assured Newsweek.
