Friday, November 5, 2010

Roxana Larios of Sigloxxi.com interviewed the Director of Banking and Agribusiness of G & T Continental, Roberto Gonzalez, on expansion plans in Central America.

"What are your expansion plans?

We began with a pilot phase in 2006 in El Salvador. Then we replicated the model in 2007 in Guatemala. In 2008 we went into Costa Rica and in 2009 we came to Panama. Now we are ready to begin operations in Honduras. We have applications pending of institutions who have contacted us. We will be in Honduras by the end of the year and go to Nicaragua in 2011, with other products tailored to the local market. What we do is adapt our products since each country is different."
