In spite of the nostalgia, she tries to take refuge in work and together with her oldest grandson she is setting up a restaurant in her home since it is located in a place with good traffic which will make for a prosperous business. As a test, she at first installed a small food stand in the door of her house which she attends every evening from 6pm until midnight and thanks to her good flavors the people are coming frequently to the food stand. This encouraged her grandson to put into motion plans for a business together with her. Now they are about to open their restaurant where people will have the possibility to visit Doña Dora in her new premises, which are in the same place, but now customers will be able to calmly eat their favorite dishes all day in a more comfortable setting.

La señora Dora, a sus 65 años, quedó viuda y junto a sus hijos y nietos pudo superar esta penosa pérdida, teniendo en ellos las fuerzas necesA. para seguir trabajando. A pesar de la nostalgia, trata de refugiarse en el trabajo y junto a su nieto mayor están implementando un restaurante en su domicilio, pues éste está ubicado en un lugar bastante transitado que hará próspero su negocio. Como prueba, primero instaló un pequeño puesto de comida en la puerta de su casa, el cual atiende todas las tardes desde las seis hasta la media noche y gracias a su buena sazón las personas han ido frecuentando su puesto de comida, lo cual animó a su nieto a poner en marcha los planes de negocio que tiene junto a su abuela. Ahora están a puertas de abrir su restaurante, donde las personas tendrán la posibilidad de visitar a doña Dora en su nuevo local, que estará en el mismo lugar, sólo que ahora podrán degustar tranquilamente de sus platillos preferidos, pues la atención será todo el día en un local más acogedor. Dora es socia fundadora de su grupo en MFP, y por seis años han compartido buenos momentos juntas, y su trabajo en equipo ha ido mejorando con el tiempo, pues han pasado por diversas dificultades económicas, por lo que han obtenido una valiosa experiencia. Los 3000 soles que ahora solicita están designados a la compra de materiales y utensilios necesarios para el pronto funcionamiento de su restaurante.
