The electricity shortages in Venezuela did not prevent Yeferson Herrera from serving his costumers in the city of Maracaibo. The young barber found another way to connect his hair clipper to electric power, through a car battery, as footage from Sunday shows.
Relying on his usual clients and friends who can provide him with the proper equipment, Yeferson sets his devices wherever he can and... Еще starts working.
«When there is no power, I have to go out to look for electricity with my friends, my clients who have a vehicle and the converter for me to work. Thank God I have my clients, I come here to the store, they help me, they lend me the car with the device,» he says.
The electrical blackouts in Venezuela began in March 2019, which President Nicolas Maduro says is from sabotage by opposition groups. The crisis in the supply of electricity is particularly serious in western Zulia state, where Maracaibo is located, with rationing reaching blackouts up to 16 hours a day.
