Rio Rico, Arizona (KGUN) — Five families are enjoying the fruits of their work after helping build a new home through Chicanos Por La Causa (CPLC).

This self-help program gives families the opportunity to participate in the construction of future homes.

María Jesús Cervantes of Chicanos Por La Causa told KGUN9 that by donating 65% of construction work in a six-month process, families could earn an average of $ 80,000 in sweat equity.

She also says that it gives them construction skills and may lead to employment opportunities if they pursue jobs in the industry.

Cervantes explains that CPLC launched a self-help housing program in 1995 to support low-income households.
