Estela
Estela, 30, is a young woman who lives in the city of Ica, which is known for its warm climate throughout the year. It is also known for having one of the most attractive tourist spots in the country, the "Laguna de Huacachina", and for being an agricultural city where cotton, grapes and asparagus are grown. In her free time, Estela loves to sing and make her favorite dishes, such as her tasty "Pollo a la Brasa" (roast chicken). She was only able to get a secondary education because of her parents' low income, but she would have liked to study psychology.

Every day Estela works hard in the grocery store she runs out of her house. She spends about 12 hours and attends to up to 40 customers a day. She believes her business does well because she is attentive and offers low prices.
