FUNDES International

In 2008, FUNDES committed to preserve and strengthen 20,000 small traditional retail shops - or mom and pop shops - in Latin America over a period of four years. With this commitment, FUNDES aims to transform these shops into more competitive and modern business entities, thereby enabling them to face the increasingly competitive market conditions that result from the globalization of the supermarket business sector.
