Dorila lives in the tourist city of Libertad, Her house is made of cement and she has access to all the utilities of water, electricity and paved roads.  
She learnt about the business of hammock sales from her husband since he was the one who was carrying on the business. He taught his son who later taught her.

Now she is the one who makes them according to demand since their production requires time and material and sometimes the customers do not want to pay the costs. 

As her husband had the busines for a long time it had a wide variety of customers and for this reason it is going well for her. Recently she received a large order for this product and so she is asking for the loan as she wants to buy the thread which is the primary material required for the production of hammocks. Her goal for the future is to continue working for a long time.
