Trinidad
Trinidad is 41 years old. She is single, but she has two children, ages 16 and 8, who she lives with. She owns her house. She built it herself, in a region of the central jungle.

Her business is to prepare and sell food from a stall she installed in her house. She has spent more than five years doing this work. She started by selling candies and sodas, but thanks to her work and her income from MFP, now she has chairs and tables that allow her to attend to her diners with comfort. "My work is from Monday to Sunday, because I like to do it", she mentions. Trinidad works all week because she knows that in this way she can achieve her goals.

Furthermore, her weekend labor is more arduous, since she prepares extra stews that are typical of the area, which according to her are in high demand. Her customers already know her and they are loyal to her because of her food seasoning. Also, they decide what she should prepare for the day. She is happy with her work.

This will be her ninth loan with MFP, and since she has done this before, she says she will make her monthly payments with punctuality. "Flor de San Juan" is the name of her community bank, where she is the treasurer. She will use this money to buy wholesale ingredients such as rice, sugar, meats, etc. in order to prepare her foods.
