Mirian Christina Andres, 12, holds brother, Rudy Tomas, 1, as sister Rosa Tomas Andres, 18, does laundry in a sink outside the Pascual family's home. The girls live across the street from the family in San Miguel Acatan and share the sink with the Pascuals where they wash their laundry by hand. Children in Guatemala start work at an early age and most don't see a problem with children working at a young age in the United States, where they can make more money for their families.
