Rocio de las Nieves Reyes Galvez (R) is consoled by a friend after learning that her eviction had been suspended in Madrid October 9, 2013. Reyes Galvez is unemployed and suffers from a heart condition that makes it difficult for her to find a regular job. Her unemployment benefits ran out three months ago and she and her daughter live on the 250 euros she gets from her former husband as alimony. Her mother, who has a pension of 800 euros, also chips in. Reyes Galvez and her daughter have been living for the past six months in a flat owned by a friend, who moved away after becoming unemployed herself and failing to pay her mortgage. Reyes Galvez's eviction was postponed until November 15 after negotiations with Spanish nationalized lender Bankia. The stickers on the building read. "Yes, we can" (green) and "But they don't want to" (red). REUTERS/Susana Vera (SPAIN - Tags: SOCIETY POVERTY REAL ESTATE BUSINESS) less
