Yesenia Cruz Rodriguez, 41, goes through her wallet as she waits for the judicial commission to carry out her eviction from a house owned by her brother and sister in Madrid October 7, 2013. Cruz's brother, Carlos Roberto Quinones Rodriguez, stopped making his mortgage payments two years ago, when he became unemployed. He returned to his native El Salvador in search for work while his sister Yesenia, who is currently out of a job, stayed on at the house in Madrid. Even though Cruz Rodriguez's eviction was later postponed until October 31, she followed up with a trip to her Bankia bank branch with her sister and anti-eviction activists to negotiate an agreement of dation in payment. The bank refused the offer of property capitulation in exchange for cancelling the debt, and instead offered Cruz Rodriguez the choice to rent one of its apartments at social housing rates.
