A loan of $250 helped to buy cassava, plantains, limes, chili powder, plastic bags, etc.


Luis Rogelio's story

Luis is 61 years old and he lives in his own house along with his children. Luis is a hardworking person who has been making and selling fried plantain and cassava chips for more than three years. He makes his sales as a street vendor in the high-traffic areas of his town, and thanks to his charisma, he has been able to earn the trust of many clients who prefer him more each day. Luis would like to invest in his business, so he is requesting this loan from FUSAI to invest in the purchase of ingredients such as: cassava, plantains, limes, chili powder, plastic bags, etc. In his way he hopes to improve his sales and thereby his income, which will allow him to improve his and his family’s living conditions.
