Dalila started an internet cafe with her daughter just two months ago. Initially, she had an handicrafts workshop with her husband, which they used to cover their family expenses. Unfortunately, her husband died quite young, and Dalila had to find another job. Over the past seven years, she worked in other people's homes and then worked as a traveling saleswoman in Huaycán, selling candy, pacifiers, soft drinks and detergent. At 58 years of age, she has united with her daughter to start this new business, and counts on her to help cover living expenses. In the future, she hopes to put a candy case in her internet cafe.

Dalila recién empezó, con su hija, su negocio de cabinas públicas de internet, solamente tiene dos meses.
Inicialmente tenía un taller de artesanías junto a su esposo, y así cubrían los gastos de la familia y del hogar. Lamentablemente su esposo se falleció bastante joven, y Dalila tuvo que encontrar otro trabajo. Empezó trabajando en servicios de casa, y luego vendió golosinas, chupetes, gaseosas y detergente como ambulante en Huaycán, su distrito, durante siete años.
A sus cincuenta y ocho años se ha juntado a su hija para empezar con este negocio nuevo, y también cuenta en el apoyo ella para cubrir sus gastos de subsistencia. En el futuro, esta pensando poner una vitrina de golosinas en la tienda de Internet.
