Ndeye: As I stated before, these children are the future of France and I don't want the future to be of the rich only getting richer and the poor only getting poorer. I believe firmly that if these children learn to stand up for themselves and have the logic and knowledge to back themselves up, they will succeed in beating those who only have money in their heads.

If she's in the second estate, her father would probably be a noble who has lots of land he inherited from his father.

Companies don't exist yet. The government doesn't exist yet. They're still trying to form the idea of a constitution where the king has limited power and can't do whatever he wants.
