Ánimo de Lucro: Intent to profit

Con ánimo de lucro
With intent to profit.

[Caption 24, Con ánimo de lucro > Short Film > 1]

Lucro means "gain" or "profit." Think "filthy lucre" as a mnemonic device.

Frankly, it's a little surprising to have a documentary ostensibly about the quest to end poverty and hunger with the title
Con ánimo de lucro ("With intent to profit" / i.e. "For-profit"). After all, to describe non-profit (or, not-for-profit) ventures in the Spanish-speaking world, the phrase "sin ánimo de lucro" (or, "sin fines de lucro") is commonly used... Well, future installments of this documental promise to explain this cryptic title.
