I think this is great. Hispanic families in the US would also benefit highly from non-predatory financial products. I spent a few months learning about investing and tried my best to pass that knowledge on to my family but it was challenging communicating the value of savings. Hope you have great success in Chile and are able to expand to other markets.

In New Mexico Hispanic population frequents Indian Casinos. Both groups might better invest than waste time and money. I have tried to interest Hispanic and Native friends in investing in health care (Health Care Mutual funds avg. 16% over 40 yrs). The rate of diabetes in Native and Hispanic populationsis 30%. 40% of hospital costs is now in ICU for chronic disease. 1/3 State and US budget Medicare.

If Hispanic investors are victims of diabetes by eating processed foods as in US and Mexico. Investing will simply force them to spend their wealth on health as is happening in US and Mexico. If behavior in wealth is not matched with health the result is simply spending all the saved money on chronic disease.
