    What a great video! An amazing demonstration of how the tradition of a community dynamic, as applied to progress and productivity, is translated into today’s financial terms. Garifunas have always lived collaboratively. It’s great to see that collaborative spirit applied to educating, reinforcing and spreading the spirit of successful personal finance. Economic empowerment is essential to the strength of our people. Really hope this idea spreads. Here in Honduras, I just recently found out that ODECO has had a cooperative (more like a credit union) for about just as long. Part of the success is watching its members come together to talk about and save money. There is nothing like plugging into a group in order to accomplish a goal. Kudos to the Avila brothers. I am a new fan!
