Hungry for change
Maria DeLourdes Oregel hasn't found work since her harvesting job petered out last year, her husband's hours at the local chicken farm have been cut by a third, and even though she feeds her children meat only once a week, she runs out of cash before the end of each month.
She's one of the lucky ones. At least she has a roof and her family has some kind of paycheck.
