In August I had the opportunity to visit our subsidiary in Nicaragua, and I was thrilled to see what a difference we are making there.
It was great to be able to spend time with our team in Nicaragua, ably led by Klau Geyer, our CEO, and also visit some of FINCA’s clients to see and hear how our financial services are enabling the growth of their businesses.
As always, I came away inspired by the enthusiasm and dedication of our staff, and their commitment to helping our clients build a better future for themselves and their families.
I was especially moved by a client named Julia Ramirez, who despite her own very modest circumstances chooses to help the children of less fortunate families in her community. Like so many of our clients, Julia has overcome adversity in her personal life and presents a brave and generous face to the world.
I wanted to share some of their stories with you, so I made a short video blog of my time in Nicaragua. I’d love if you spared a few minutes to watch it.
