Ambulatorio has different meanings according to context. DRAE 2. Perteneciente o relativo a la práctica de andar. Funny, reminded me of prams, a contracted form of their original name, 'perambulators'. :O)
Hi Patricia: "actividades productivas" seem to mean economic activity in general. I don't think it's necessarily about prostitution, although some of the women are also forced into it, due to their precarious circomstances. "Ambulatorio" is confusing me - thought that meant "outpatients"!

such as the places where street vendors usually setup their stalls/offer their products
Explanation: Carol, I think the example given in your text points to the place where informal economy activities usually take place, sometimes occupying a few blocks in a given area of the city/town of an impoverished country (with or without the municipality's authorization).
