She works as a seamstress and learned this trade by watching and helping her sister at her small workshop. As a result, she gained the necessary knowledge and experience. With a small amount of capital, Yolanda purchased a sewing machine, the main piece of equipment for her work. She started mending clothes for customers. What she likes about her job is the income that she generates so that she can pay for the household expenses. In addition, she enjoys sewing and making undergarments and clothing for all ages.
