Access to financial services empowers small enterprises in Latin America
Access to financial services and using them adequately can support small businesses in Latin America to start or grow successfully, thus creating long-term income for owners and employees.
Financial cooperatives, banks, fintech companies and crowdfunding platforms offer mobile financial services and financing options and satisfy new customer needs in payment transactions or investments.
With many years of experience in financial sector development, I support banks, cooperatives, microfinance institutions, fintech and international organizations in developing innovative financial services and financing options for small family businesses and their owners. I also support the development and implementation of financial education and health programmes.
