Galletero lives with her 25-year-old daughter Noelia, who has a part-time job and her 14-year-old son.

Her income consists of euro 680 (US$ 916) from Noelia's part-time job and state benefits of euro 426 (US$ 646). The eviction was postponed for two months with the help of the Victims' Mortgage Platform (PAH).
