Frequently Asked Questions
What is Trenza?
Well, technically, Trenza means "braid" in Spanish - but that's a huge part of who we are. We believe that communities are stronger when they come together for one common purpose, and Trenza hopes to do just that.

What is a #Jefa?
Translated - a female boss. At Trenza, our #Jefa's are the foundation of our community. They are Latina creatives who own, operate, and produce their own passions in the fashion, beauty, and creative fields. You can listen to our #Jefa's here and then support them by purchasing their product here!
How do I become a #Jefa?
Are you a Latina creative who owns her own business in the fashion, beauty, or creative fields? Yes - cool! We'd love to connect with you on what the application process and next steps are to join our babe cave here at Trenza! Fill out the form here!
Why 10% to a non-profit?
Something truly important to us as a Community Social Entrepreneurship (CSE) is that our community begins to see itself as both the investor and beneficiary. AKA we ensure that our customer/listener/fellow Latina can not only benefit from listening to the #Jefa Podcast, receiving a product she purchased online, or attending one our local meet-ups, but can also invest in the #Jefa, Trenza, and her larger community through the 10% non-profit donation to a Latinx serving non-profit!
It's a huge part of who we are, and we're super proud of it.
