Isabel belongs to a humble and needy family. The father is a responsible man. He works hard as a small scale farmer. The mother takes care of her family and does the house chores. The family's monthly income is approximately less than U.S. $76.00. It is really low and they have serious problems to cover all their most urgent needs. They belong to the Totonaco ethnic group. They own their dwelling. It consists of one single room and a latrine. It is made of wood and it has no drainage. Their furniture is in poor conditions and their daily meals are not well balanced due to the lack of resources. They very seldom eat meat or chicken. Isabel is now in good health and she has been vaccinated against the major childhood diseases. She is cheerful and friendly. She is still very small to help in the house chores. She is attending preschool where she is learning the vowels, numbers, colors, etc. Her sisters' names are Esmeralda and Guadalupe.
