Brigitte sells hot dogs, sausages and fries, stuffed plantains, hamburgers, and other delicacies. She also adds sauces that please the palettes of customers who delight in her food every day. The strength behind Brigitte’s business is her knowledge of food preparation. She has a great opportunity due to the rapid population expansion that is taking place in this community.


This is her first loan with Fundación Mario Santo Domingo. She will use the funds to buy a hot dog cart so that she can elegantly display and preserve her food in sanitary conditions. This will have an impact on her current market and help her gain potential customers. With a successful investment, Brigitte looks to increase her income.
