Estefana
Estefana is 56 years old, has 4 children, and two of them live with her at the moment. Mrs. Estefana was only 11 years old when she began working with her mother cleaning homes since they did not have much money. Since she was the eldest she also worked with her father at the counter of a clothing warehouse. She was then hired in a fabric warehouse and a helper in a kitchen. She used her free time to study dressmaking.
She then decided to work from home to make clothing for a fabric company. She used those profits to build a tortilla shop and little by little she built a grocery shop within her home called "BUENOS AIRES" which is the business that helped her build her home. She is requesting the loan to buy edible merchandise.
