Sadly, she lost her beloved husband. Since then, she has become the principal pillar of support for her children. Unfortunately, due to lack of financial resources she had to work from the time she was very young, so she was not able to pursue a degree in nursing. In her free time she likes to cook. She especially enjoys making the delicacy Carapulcra con Sopa Seca (a dish made with chicken, pork and noodles) to share with her family.
On her own initiative, with much sacrifice and dedication, Dionisia runs her own small business selling fruit, especially fried items such as salted potatoes, salted chicken, hot dogs and hamburgers. She also has a business renting out a mototaxi to other drivers. She works every day for approximately 10 hours. She believes that things are going well thanks to the good flavor of her food and the friendly service that she provides to her customers.
