Camilo Atala Faraj represents the visionary spirit of Honduras


Camilo Atala Faraj, president of Banco Ficohsa, is the leader of the expansion of one of the largest and most successful financial groups in Central America and carries in his blood the highest sense of responsibility towards work, family and Honduran society.

As CEO of Ficohsa Financial Group (FFG), he helps to fulfil the dreams of millions of Central Americans through his work. For the banker, it is of utmost importance for the region to move forward, creating opportunities for all equally.

Camilo Atala Faraj focuses his efforts on combating school dropouts. As a leader in the private sector, he focuses his efforts on combating school dropout rates, as many children do not enter first grade because they are poor and live in vulnerable areas.

That is why in 1998 they created the Ficohsa Foundation for Children’s Education, with the firm purpose of giving Honduran children a chance for a better future. “We have reduced school dropout rates by 98%. It is important that the children’s parents are convinced that education will open up new horizons for them in the future,” the banker said.

Innovative thinking represents opportunities for change

Another dream that Camilo Atala is fulfilling from the FFG is Central American integration, a process that has been longed for for many years, because it is evidence that with hard work and will, all projects that are proposed can be achieved.

His experience leads him to understand that the situation in Central America and Honduras requires the impulse and support of all economic agents and individuals, and he invites everyone to participate in the development of the region. “We have the opportunity to be a generation that forever changed the destinies of the region and this should be something that motivates us all,” concluded Camilo Atala.
