Trinidad
41-year-old Trinidad is a single woman with two children aged 16 and 7. They live in their own home in San Juan Centro Autiki, in Pichanaki district, Chanchamayo.

Trinidad is a meticulous woman when it comes to carrying out her household chores. She decided to start work preparing meals and selling them in a restaurant that she set up in her home. She has been in this business for more than five years. She started out selling sweet treats and soda but, thanks to the coordinated work of MFP and her own efforts, she now has tables and chairs which allow her to serve her customers comfortably.

"I sell breakfasts, lunches and dinners from Monday to Sunday", she says. Trinidad works all week long because she knows that this way she will be able to achieve her goals. On weekends her work is more difficult as she prepares special dishes such as 'tacacho con cecina' (a traditional rainforest dish made from plantains and cured meat), chicken soups, freshwater fish prepared in different ways (fried, grilled, battered and fried, etc.) Her customers already know her and are loyal to the flavor of her food. What's more, they are the ones who decide what she should prepare each day. She is happy with her business because her customers visit her, she is able to chat to them and they become friends.

This will be Trinidad's eighth loan from MFP. She says that she will make her monthly repayments on time as she has in the past. "Flor de San Juan" is the name of her community bank. She is very committed to her group and trusts the other members. Trinidad will invest her loan money in buying supplies and ingredients for preparing her food. She will also be able to paint the walls of her premises to improve her business' image.

Trinidad de 41 años es una mujer soltera. Tiene 2 hijos de 16 y 7 años, con quienes vive en una casa propia en el centro poblado San Juan Centro Autiki, en el distrito de Pichanaki – Chanchamayo.
Trinidad es una mujer meticulosa en las labores del hogar. Es así que se animó a preparar alimentos para expenderlos en un restaurante que adecuó en su vivienda. Lleva más de 5 años en este negocio. Empezó vendiendo golosinas y gaseosas, pero gracias al trabajo coordinado con MFP y su esfuerzo, ahora cuenta con sillas y mesas que le permiten atender a sus comensales con comodidad.
“Vendo desayunos, almuerzos y cenas de lunes a domingo”, comenta. Trinidad trabaja toda la semana porque sabe que así, podrá conseguir sus metas. Además, los fines de semana sus labores son más arduas ya que prepara platos especiales como: Tacacho con cecina (plato típico de la selva elaborado con plátanos y carne seca), caldos de gallina, pescados de río en distintas presentaciones (fritos, a la parrilla, en chicharrones, etc.)
Sus clientes ya la conocen y son fieles a su sazón, es más, son ellos quienes deciden que debe preparar para el día, está contenta con su actividad, porque la vistan seguidamente y puede charlar con ellos, que ya se convirtieron en amigos. Éste sería su crédito número 8 que obtendría de MFP. Como lo hizo antes, esta vez también afirma que pagará las cuotas mensuales con puntualidad. “Flor de San Juan” es el nombre de su banco comunal y muestra apego y confianza con los miembros de su grupo. Invertirá el dinero del préstamo en la compra de insumos e ingredientes para preparar los alimentos. Además podrá pintar las paredes de su local para mejorar la imagen de su negocio.
