“I have lived in São Paulo for 56 years, and raised my children selling products in the street. I used to have a job where I had no connection with the boss and a bad schedule. Today I am the owner of my own business, I go to the street the time that I want, I make the schedule that I want, I sell. If I need money, I’ll set a goal and I’ll go up in the sales. If I want to buy something, I go there and buy it: I bought a notebook, a refrigerator, everything I needed. My dream was to set up a small sewing factory. I wanted to buy machines, but machines are expensive things. Then I went to the street with the goal of buying one, and today, I also have the machines. I’m on the street, it’s my territory, it’s what I like to do, and for the future I want more. I am with my grandchildren, and I want to help them to study, to go to college. And so I will. The Kiteiras business is very good because there are people who stay at home and have no other alternative, they don’t have an escape. The person on the street makes friendships, she distracts herself and makes money. It’s all there. You’re happy, you chat, you sell, you make money. What else do you want?”.
