Global Credit Union Podcast Episode Eight: How a Peruvian fintech is digitizing credit unions in just 30 days

MADISON, WI (December 16, 2021) — Facundo Turconi, owner and CEO of Solven, a South American fintech, is featured on Episode Eight of the Global Credit Union Podcast to discuss how his firm has helped credit unions in Peru offer digital credit options to their members in less than two months through World Council of Credit Unions’ Economic Inclusion Project. Funded by USAID, the Economic Inclusion Project seeks to expand financial inclusion to Venezuelan migrants and low-income local residents in Peru and Ecuador.

Facundo also talks about the obstacles preventing many credit unions in Latin America from offering digital services and why many of those roadblocks are common ones for credit unions throughout the world.
