Driven by her desire to give her two children an education, Yolanda is constantly learning new artistry techniques to expand her business. Yolanda never attended school herself, so she started a weaving business to support her family. Yolanda’s husband is supportive of her business, and she has attended numerous technical trainings to learn how to make new products. Yolanda’s specialty is creating beautiful color combinations in her woven products, available for sale in the online Tipica Market.
Yolanda leads a group of 13 artisans and works to secure orders for the group’s members and pursue potential export opportunities for their products. Each woman in the group has a role to play to ensure their cooperative is successful. As an empowered woman, Yolanda is committed to empowering other women in her country.
