Poverty Meanings and Projections of Homeless Men
One of the scenarios of extreme poverty is the situation of life on the street (homelessness). The case study presented in this article analyzes the meanings of poverty constructed from male experiences of deported ex-migrants and identifies future projections that are made in the precarious context. The participants of this research are seven men who go to a humanitarian aid shelter in Hermosillo, capital of Sonora (Mexico) and who were interviewed for the elaboration of their life stories, a technique chosen for the induction of meanings, meanings and experiences. The results show the view from Human Rights around the needs and aspects that consolidate the problem from social exclusion. A projection of life is proposed without incorporating an agency role, which generates a “living in the present” based on guidelines from positivism and faith. It concludes with the need to incorporate gender in the analysis of extreme poverty, as an axis to understand the situation on the street, and life stories as an appropriate technique for the collection of meanings and experiences around new social processes that are taking place. developing on the northern border of the country.
