Bank dealings with Cooperativa CREA?

Hello, I read in this forum a few weeks ago a post about Cooperativa CREA, with Agent Giovanna, near Huayna Capap, was wondering if any of you have opened a Bank account? Long term CD? Was the rate 9%? Did you have any issues with wiring money to the account from overseas bank? Any info and personal experience about this cooperativa and agent please share or send me an email. Thanks in advance.
