Fusades, El Salvador
Operating out of El Salvador, where Puma Energy has a large fuel network and retail presence, the Salvadoran Foundation for Economic and Social Development (FUSADES) is a private, non-profit organisation and think tank dedicated to social and economic change. Since 1998, a flagship programme, ‘FORTAS’ has driven public-private partnerships to improve the lives of poor communities in the country. A new project supported by Puma Energy Foundation will increase revenues of extremely poor farmers by improving productivity, diversification and market opportunities.
Where they work
From 2015 to 2017 we will support FUSADES in the region of Usulután, in the South East of the country, to improve the livelihoods of 150 agriculture and livestock farmers. This particular scheme will help farmers boost the quality of their agriculture and livestock while developing their business through marketing and enhanced connections along the agricultural value chain. In line with Puma Energy’s dynamic business spirit, the programme also promotes entrepreneurship and business sustainability.Visit Website
