Sra. Zoila Ortiz is a 48 year old hardworking single mother who lives in the neighborhood annex of Villa Venezuela. She has an 18 year old son. With her savings and the help of a loan, Sra. Zoila started a cafeteria at the local high school and has been in business now for 10 years. Ever since she received permission from the school to start her business, she has been experiencing good sales and the students and faculty are pleased with her service.
