Charles's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped fund the purchase of the equipment I need to completely build my food truck and launch my business.


Charles's story

Cooking has always been my passion. As a Detroit native, I was exposed to a wide variety of soul food and delicious deli sandwhiches that left quite an impression on my taste buds! Unfortunately many of the dishes that I loved to eat were loaded with fat, meat and processed items that are not good for your body. As a result of my poor diet my health began to decline. I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and also overweight so I adopted a plant based diet in hopes of regaining a healthier lifestyle and not dying prematurely from causes that are related tp poor nutrition such as high blood pressure, stroke or heart attack. As my diet improved, my health improved and it gave me the motivation to launch my plant based food truck RevvvSoul. My mission at RevvSoul is to provide classic deli sandwhiches and comfort food that is all plant based, and good for you. Healthy food doesn't just have to taste healthy, it can be healthy!
