A little while ago Elina opened her grocery business and variety store as a bazaar in her home. However, because the area where she lives is not very frequented, this business did not do well. For this reason, six months ago she decided to sell clothing as a street vendor as well as on order.

In addition to this work, she sells salchipapas [fried hotdogs and french fries] at night from the doorway of her home, a small business which it turn out has been quite profitable. In the future, she would like to look for a good location to open a restaurant.

The income she makes from her two businesses is used for her two children aged 18 and 15 who are still in school.
Hace algún tiempo Elina su negocio de venta de abarrotes y artículos varios en un bazar en un local de su casa. Sin embargo, como la zona donde vive ella no es muy transitada no tuvo éxito con aquel trabajo. Por lo que decidió hace medio año dedicarse más bien a la venta de ropa como ambulante y bajo pedidos

Además de esto, por las noches vende salchipapas en la puerta de su casa, pues es un negocio pequeño pero finalmente más rentable. Más adelante quisiera buscar un local bien ubicado para abrir un restaurante.

Los ingresos que obtiene de sus dos trabajos los destina especialmente a sus dos hijos de dieciocho y quince años que aún se encuentran estudiando.
