Jhosselin's Story:

Fried chicken, tacos, and tortillas are average fair in Momostenango, but there is at least one restaurant that is bucking the trend: Fusion. Jhosselin, a local resident, decided she wanted to bring variety and something new to the small town and break people out of their normality.

Food always being a passion for her, she invested a lot of her own money to go to Guatemala city - 5 hours away - and take classes in the culinary arts. Excited, she new the next step after those 2 years would be to open up her own restaurant in Momos.

Originally occupying a large space, she realized her style was much more intimate and in early 2018 moved to a different location up the street. However, she is finding it hard to break through to the market and decided to enlist the friendship of FTF

Now, we are figuring out what success looks like for her and where she wants to take her restaurant. Look below for more details!
