Yakima Woman Overcoming Challenges in Owning a Business

Melena Espinosa started her own business, El Taco Loco, in Yakima around five years ago and is still in business today.

Starting a business can be very stressful for anyone but one obstacles that Espinosa had to face was getting through the language barrier.

For Espinosa, Spanish was her first language and she recieved no formal training in english.  She basically learned through trial and error and recieved help from her friends.

Today there is more help out there for Hispanics than five years ago when Espinosa first started.  The hardest part is the book keeping that is involved in running a business.
