Last Saturday February 11th, 2006, the members of Financiera Summa participated in a ropes and sounds workshop, organized by the Excellence Center of the Francisco Marroquín University.

“The participants had the opportunity to engage in activities using the low ropes technique for high impact lessons.  Later that morning, Beatriz Pinto, directed a musicotherapy activity in which the participants used different instruments”, explained Carla de Hess, director of the Center.

When concluding the teamwork activity, the participants commented that:
