Yolanda
Yolanda is the mother of five youngsters. In the mornings she helps in the communal eatery of the village where she lives. Right now she is planing to open a beauty salon together with her daughter, who in a short time will finish her technical course in cosmetics. She considers herself a homemaker, but also walks the streets of her locality in order to sell crockery and glasses door-to-door. She started this business when her husband found work in a glass factory, and so with the idea of helping with home maintenance she began to sell on account. However, not long ago her husband left this work and now has a better job in another factory, so the number of sales Yolanda makes has diminished.

Yolanda es madre de cinco jóvenes. Por las mañanas se encarga de apoyar al comedor popular del asentamiento humano donde vive. Por ahora esta planeando abrir un salon de belleza junto a su hija, quien dentro de poco terminará su carrera técnica de cosmetología.

Ella se considera ama de casa, pero eventualmente recorre las calles de su localidad para vender vajillas de vidrio a domicilio. Este negocio lo inició una vez que su esposo encontró trabajo en una fábrica de vidrios. Con la idea de ayudar al mantenimiento del hogar empezó a vender por su cuenta.

No obstante, no hace mucho su esposo abandonó aquel trabajo y ahora labora en un puesto mejor en otra fábrica, por lo que la frecuencia de ventas de Yolanda ha disminuido.
