The Wider Image: On the border, stranded and struggling 
Cuban migrant Ismael Diaz, 46, an agricultural worker, (L) is pictured with Carlos Perez, 45, an economist, as they work on a private property in Paso Canoas on the border with Costa Rica March 22, 2016. "I left Cuba with $2,500 and arrived in Ecuador. From Ecuador to Panama I lost all my money after the Colombian mafia tried to kidnap my wife and they stole all my money," said Diaz, who has been in Panama for seven months. "All I want to do is complete the American Dream." Diaz makes $20 a day and uses the money to pay for medicine for his wife, who has high blood pressure. "I have a wife and 2 children travelling with me," said Perez. "We left Cuba with $2,400, we worked a bit in Ecuador. We have just enough money for the plane tickets for all 4 of us to travel from Panama to Mexico. I work for $20 a day which covers our daily needs. The only thing I want is to reach to Miami to give my children a better future." REUTERS/Carlos Jasso SEARCH "CUBANS STUCK" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "THE WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES
