The usual September EoC meeting of the Southern Cone was held in Montevideo: the impressions of our envoy
by Carolina Carbonell
It is 23:30 on a Friday, 15 September. It's a cold winter night. The station is bustling with people, everyone on their own journey and with a vital route to pursue. Three adults, supplied with a thermos and a large bag, offer coffee to reduce the cold and a sandwich to eat. It’s a beautiful gesture that prepares our heart for what is coming later.

TRUST and integrity have always been essential qualities in the financial industry. These values are what motivated Atty. Francis Ganzon, 67, when he took over Bangko Kabayan, a private development bank dedicated to improving and empowering small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
After graduating from the Ateneo de Manila College of Law, and working as an associate lawyer, Mr. Ganzon left his legal career to help save his father-in-law’s business, the Ibaan Rural Bank, Inc. (IRB). The IRB was in the middle of a bank run with bank personnel involved in fraud cases. “My father-in-law said my only concern is to regain the trust of the people and to make sure everything is done properly,” recalls Mr. Ganzon.
Dedicated to the incubation of new EoC companies, the EoC-IIN international network is now consolidated and its online platform www.eoc-iin.org is presented
by Rebeca Gomez Tafalla
Less than a year has passed since the opening of the first EoC-IINHub (local access point) and the network already has 14 sites in 13 countries (Cameroon, Uganda, Mexico, Brazil, Cuba, USA, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Argentina, the Czech Republic and Slovakia). In addition to these, several EoC entrepreneurs from other countries (Togo, Belgium, DRC...) have joined in, too.
In recent months, our Hubs have organized and promoted courses and workshops to provide technical-professional training and preparation for the EoC at the local level, accompanying the execution of new entrepreneurial projects in a personalized and systematic way. While the hubs' action has so far been limited to projects and people in their narrow territorial area, the EoC-IIN platformnow offers the opportunity to access the various services - in six different languages - even for those who cannot easily reach a local hub.

The EoC Melbourne group invited Lawrence Chong, an EoC entrepreneur based in Singapore to come and present on the history of the EoC and the journey of his company, Consulus, in living for unity and communion.
