Yolanda's story

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.
