Guadalupe Venegas, owner of Los Tres Potrillos Western Wear. Northgate Blvd., Sacramento.
I've been in business for 23 years. it’s really slow right now; no weddings, no quinceañera, and no soccer. Business went down 80%. I am behind on my rent and I know the landlord wants their money. When this pandemic started, I closed for five weeks. I was just staying home and I ran out of money. One Sunday, my wife asked me, "Hey, can I get some money to go buy groceries?" And I had to tell her I didn't have it. And she asked me again, "What do you mean you don't have it? I said, "You didn't hear what I said, I don't have it!" I kind of got angry but inside I was feeling bad. I was feeling so sad that I had to tell my wife that.
