Augusto Álvarez – cofounder and co-CEO of AlphaCredit said: “We want to thank SoftBank’s Latin America Fund and the other investors participating in this round for placing their trust in us and our innovative business model. Cutting edge technology and strong financial backing have allowed us to grow exponentially while promoting the economic development of a greater number of people that have limited access to credit.”

AlphaCredit is said to have more than eight years of experience in lending in the Mexican and Colombian markets, with more than $1 billion in loans issued to its clients which remain underserved by traditional banks or without access to other types of financing.
