Prior to joining B-MINCOME, Lonel, like many others, was struggling to make ends meet. He was living with his family in a squat, had nothing to feed his children, and was unable to find work. The project brought about a huge change, not just his life, but in the lives of his children and other members of the community. He now lives in social housing; his sons are part of a football club; and he says sees happier, cheerier people all around him; “People now can buy what they need. You can know there has been a change because of their faces. Before people were really sad, because they had nothing…[B-MINCOME] has been very good for us, and for all the families”.
