Trinidad
Trinidad is 52 years old, and is married to Donato. They have two children, one of whom lives with them in the home that they purchased 37 years ago.

Trinidad's parents were artisans, and from a very young age she learned to work with looms, combine colors and weave intricate designs and borders in fabric. "My father would win craft contests; he was one of the best," she says. When Trinidad started her own family, she was working as a farmer. With her income from farming, she bought three looms that she still uses, and began weaving blankets, as well as costumes for folk singers and other events. Her biggest sale days of the year come during the time of the festival to honor the animals and carnivals. During this period of time, Trinidad is constantly taking orders from clients for woven items, and she has to double her efforts to keep up with demand.

Presently, she wants to open up a juice bar to generate additional income. She is a member of the solidarity group, "Santiago de Chauca," and this is her third loan with MFP. Over the past years she has benefited greatly from loans, as they have helped her to improve her business and learn from her fellow group members, who are like brothers and sisters to her. She promises to continue her history of prompt loan payments. Trinidad plans to use the support from this loan to purchase skeins of synthetic wool, colored threads and several kilograms of cotton for completing client orders for the festival season.

Trinidad tiene 52 años, está casada con Donato, con quien tiene dos hijos, pero ahora sólo vive con uno de ellos, en la casa que compraron hace 37 años.
Sus padres se dedicaban a la artesanía y desde muy pequeña ella aprendió a trabajar con los telares, combinar los colores y las técnicas de bordado. “Mi papá ganaba concursos de artesanía, era uno de los mejores”, comenta. Cuando formó su familia se dedicaba a la agricultura, con esas ganancias compró los tres telares que ahora posee, con ellos realiza frazadas, vestuarios para los cantantes folklóricos y otras prendas. Los principales días de venta es durante la festividad en honor a los animales y los carnavales. En esas fechas los pedidos de sus clientes llegan todo el día, por lo que tiene que duplicar sus esfuerzos para obtener buenas ganancias. Ahora desea abrir una juguería en su casa para tener un ingreso extra.

Ella pertenece al grupo solidario “Santiago de Chauca” y este es su tercer crédito con MFP. En todo este tiempo logró obtener grandes beneficios, mejorando su negocio y aprendiendo de los integrantes de su grupo, a quienes quiere como hermanos. Por esa razón promete ser puntual con el pago de sus cuotas.
Trinidad invertirá este dinero en la compra de madejas de lana sintética, hilo de colores y varios kilos de algodón para realizar los pedidos que tiene por la temporada festiva.
