Vilma Margoth,
From 6 in the afternoon until midnight Vilma Casimiro sells kebobs from the door of her home – something she has done for six years. Prior to selling kebobs she used to sell fried food as she obtained a small cart where she could cook. She was in this business only two years when her cart broke. In addition, the competition in fried food continued to grow.

Vilma began working selling various products, including cosmetics through a catalogue. She and her husband, who works as a contracted driver for a well-known clinic, cover the household expenses. In a few years she would like to open a restaurant if she has the opportunity.
