She shouldn’t work’. But I didn’t want my children and I to be dependent on someone. Maybe they disagreed with me but I do something by myself. In the beginning, I had great difficulties but now my job makes me happy. I looked after my children in this way and now they are adults and they are looking after me but I continue to do my job. I want to live by earning my own money to the end. The women taking courage from me work in the market now. Before I was alone in the market but now dozens of women are with me. As women, we provide our economy and we transfer the colors of women to the market place.”
