[edit] About George Wohanka Today

Impossible to say if it helped, as no one can tell how my life would have been had I not joined. Am happy with the path chosen. Ended up going to Brazil and getting married to a woman I had met in the states. After two years in Brazil, returned to the states, worked with credit unions both nationally and in California.

Returned to South America after about seven years in the U.S. as an adviser to a credit union project in Paraguay. Loved the 5 year experience, Then went to Peru worked with a coop bank and later with a small farmer credit project.

After 5 years in Peru returned to the states. First wife had died and I married a Peruvian. In the U.S. worked with a Corporate Credit Union as Chief Investment Officer.

Speak Spanish at home.

Would like to contact Larry Sandoval and say thanks for taking me on a trip across mountains down into the rain forest.
