As a Costa Rican, learning about search funds and buying a business to develop one's entrepreneurial dreams while studying in the Boston area opened my eyes to this entirely new way of being an entrepreneur. In Latin America, particularly in Costa Rica, this is definitely not a common thing. Has anyone here had any experience buying a business (regardless of its size) in Latin America or someone that has raised up a search fund internationally? If so, what have been your main hurdles, and how easy was it for you to go through with owner financing (or if it even was an option)?

I really appreciate in advance all your help and input!
