Tarcila is married and has 4 children, all of whom live away from home. She runs the administrative and customer service siD. of the business, and her husband does most of the manual labor, which includes measuring, cutting, and filing glass to customer’s specific orders. He says all their work is custom maD., and sometimes requires ordering specialty glass.
Tarcila hopes to receive a loan for $700 dollars. She explains this money would be used to knock down on of the walls in the shop to expand the space and reduce clutter. She has been dreaming of this project ever since moving to the large storefront several years ago. As her clientele continues to expand, she says the space is much needed.
