Just to clarify a point. LACNIC do not receive funding from the two 
national registries NIC Brazil and NIC Mexico. Indeed, they support 
LACNIC's operation through two cooperation agreements 
(http://lacnic.net/en/agreement.html) and they have helped the operation of 
LACNIC during the startup process, but they do not inject any amount of 
money to LACNIC accounts. There is a internal medium term plan to transfer 
this tasks to LACNIC staff. LACNIC receive funding exclusively through 
their members

This way, no necessarily through national regstries but ISP associations, 
may help AFRINIC for running operation during the startup process.
