Mexican FinTech Resuelve tu Deuda has raised MXN 453 million ($24 million) from two investors in order to fund international expansion. Houston, Texas-based Alloy Merchant Finance, a US private equity fund, put in MXN 360 million ($19.1 million) and Mexico City-based venture capitalist DILA Capital provided MXN 93 million ($4.9 million).
Resuelve tu Deuda (literally translated: “Solve your Debt”) was established in 2009 and now claims to be the largest credit repair company in Latin America. The company’s co-founders, Juan Pablo Zorrilla and Javier Velásquez, said the new funds will be used to consolidate the company’s growth and strengthen its presence in Latin America and Europe. The firm says it is the only FinTech focusing on debt restructuring in Mexico.
Alejandro Diez Barroso, Managing Partner of DILA Capital said: “We are very happy to participate in this round and impressed with the team and everything they have achieved.” Resuelve tu Deuda “has already proved its success outside Mexico, in Colombia, Argentina and Spain and we are convinced that this FinTech will continue to grow at accelerated rates with openings of new countries and launches of innovative complementary products. ”
With 16 branches in Mexico, Resuelve tu Deuda now employs more than 1,000 people across the four countries it currently operates in and claims that once people enter the credit repair program, they can save up to 70% on their existing debts.
