Diulka lives with her parents and four siblings in a poor and dangerous neighborhood. Their house is made of wood, tin, and cement. They cook over a fire pit and have no indoor plumbing. At night, the children sleep on an old mattress placed on the floor. Their mother does not have a job and their father is a moto-taxi driver. The girls often walk the streets selling limes, candies, and brooms to earn money—a very dangerous thing for young girls to do alone. Diulka is prone to bad colds, and is small for her age. She loves her dolls and has a talent for singing and dancing.
