He runs a 100% Mexican fintech that he co-founded in 2013, focused on financing small and medium-sized enterprises. In the year of the pandemic, amid a liquidity-seeking environment, Konfío managed to increase its loan portfolio by 20%. In June 2021 it raised US$125 million in a Series E capital raise led by Lightrock, with participation from Softbank, VEF, Kaszek Ventures, QED Investors and International Finance Corporation. These new resources are aligned with the boom in fintech companies in Latin America, which last year raised US$8 billion, according to KoreFusion.
