拉美P2P公司Afluenta获世界银行下属机构400万融资

总部位于布宜诺斯艾利斯的P2P平台Afluenta近日宣布完成B轮融资,出资方为世界银行集团私营部门机构国际金融公司(IFC)和Elevar风险投资公司。国际金融公司和Elevar公司各出资400万美元。

Afluenta旨在变革传统的金融服务行业,削减中间过程,利用专利技术来改造申请贷款流程,从而鼓励融资贷款。 Afluenta说,它不仅为借款人提供了一个简单经济的贷款体验,而且也会为个人和机构贷款人提供更好的收益。

作为该地区的先驱,Afluenta计划使用这轮融资资金加速整个拉丁美洲的网络扩张计划。 Afluenta于2012年和2015年分别在秘鲁和阿根廷展开运营,平台计划在未来12个月在墨西哥、哥伦比亚和巴西推出新服务,以巩固在这一泛地区的革新性替代性融资标杆地位。

Elevar公司联合创始人Johanna Posada Gil表示:“Afluenta希望引领拉丁美洲新兴金融科技创新企业发展。Afluenta早已在阿根廷成为领导者,不过我们已经将目标锁定整个拉丁美洲市场,我们希望打破贷款和投资的传统模式,让更多的人负担的起贷款。”Elevar公司对其投资了400万美元,这也是Elevar对拉丁美洲P2P借贷公司的第一个投资案例。

国际金融公司在阿根廷、智利、巴拉圭和乌拉圭的地区经理 Salem Rohana表示,“在充满挑战的拉美经济体中,Afluenta已经通过自己领先的技术和坚实的业绩证明了P2P商业模式的成功。对于Afluenta的400万美元的投资说明国际金融公司希望在该地区支持创新商业模式,提高公司和个人的融资可得性。”而这也是国际金融公司在P2P借贷市场的第一个全球性投资。

Afluenta创始人和首席执行官Alejandro Cosentino说:“我们非常感谢Elevar公司与国际金融公司(IFC)的支持,Afluenta一定会由此实现迅速的成长和成功。这次B轮融资给予了我们许多宝贵的资源,让我们能够进一步革新技术、开发产品、为客户全提供更好的服务、并扩大我们的业务范围以吸引全新细分市场的潜在客户”。

Afluenta, headquarted in Buenos Aires, announced today the completion of its Series B funding round from the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the private sector institution of the World Bank Group, and Elevar Equity, a venture capital firm. IFC and Elevar Equity are investing 4 million US$ each.

Afluenta seeks to disrupt the traditional financial services industry, cutting out middlemen and using proprietary technology to transform the process of applying for a loan, thus facilitating access to financing. Afluenta says it offers borrowers a simple, affordable and less bureaucratic experience, while delivering better yield for individual and institutional lenders.

A pioneer in the region, Afluenta plans to use the proceeds of the Series B financing for accelerating its network expansion plan across Latin America. Launched in Argentina in 2012 and in Peru in 2015, Afluenta plans to launch new services in Mexico, Colombia and Brazil in the next 12 months to consolidate as the first pan-regional player of this new and disruptive alternative financing.

‘Afluenta is uniquely positioned to lead the emerging class of innovative FinTech companies in Latin America. Already a leader in Argentina, Afluenta will expand marketplace lending to multiple countries in the region and disrupt traditional models for loans and investments, making these services more accessible and affordable to millions of people’ said Johanna Posada Gil, Co-Founder at Elevar Equity who co-leads with 4 million US$dollars investment, which represents its first investment into a peer-to-peer lending company in Latin America.

‘Afluenta has built a world class technology and solid track record in the challenging Latin American economies to demonstrate that the peer-to-peer business model works and effectively delivers value to both borrowers and lenders.” said Salem Rohana, IFC Country Manager in Argentina, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay. ‘This 4 million US$ investment in Afluenta reflects IFC’s interest in supporting innovative business models in the region to improve access to finance for companies and individuals’. It represents IFC’s first global investment in a peer-to-peer lending marketplace.

‘We are grateful to Elevar Equity and IFC for their support and commitment to Afluenta’s growth and success,’ said Alejandro Cosentino, Founder and CEO of Afluenta. ‘[These] Series B … investors give us valuable resources to further develop our evolving technology, develop new products, offer much better service to our customer base and expand our reach to a whole new segments of potential customers.’
