Manuel and his wife have been together for 16 years and got married in 2005. They have two children, David-Iulian (7 years old) and Izabela Elena (2 years old).
Initially, they lived together with Manuel’s step father and brother in a two-room apartment, but when his brother got married, the lack of space forced them to find another home.
Because it was impossible to stay with his wife’s family (with five brothers and the parents living in a three-room apartment), they started looking for a place to rent.
Since then, they have moved seven times. They lived in really bad conditions, improper for raising two small children – too much humidity, no heat, and no hot water.
