El Penjamo Group's story

Elisandra, 24, is married with 2 daughters. Her eldest, Maria, is 7 years old and is in the 1st grade and Perla is 4 years old. Her husband’s name is Sirilio and he works in masonry.

She sells beauty products, like cosmetics, perfumes, creams and has been selling them door-to-door for 3 years.
