Most transwomen work in the informal sector, though a few manage to access the formal sector. Within the informal sector, 33% perform sex work, and 28% engage in other types of informal work—they are street vendors, for example. Within the formal sector, 16% are maquila workers or work in banana or coffee plantations, and they are not unionized. It is unclear if they have to give up being true to their gender identity in order to work in these jobs.
