Enrique sends less money to Honduras, but does not level with María Isabel about his difficulties. Her family encourages her to move on, to find someone else. Others tell her to go to the United States, while she is still young. In Honduras, middle-aged women have a hard time finding work that pays well, often settling for jobs that pay $50 to $90 a month. In 1998, Hurricane Mitch caused great devastation in Honduras, and caused an increase in unemployment that has only worsened. María Isabel understands both the benefits and dangers of leaving her native country, but most of all fears losing the love of her child.
