When CR sublicenses a show from Funimation, they can only get rights to regions that Funi got the rights to. Since Funimation has not done business in Latin America, it was not their priority to license shows for that region.

Some people have expressed an expectation that with the partnership with CR, it might be more worthwhile going forward for Funi to get those licenses when they can, as CR can then sublicense from them. The partnership is still rather new though, so that would't have been a part of their strategy in the past--at the time when Funi acquired the licenses.
