    • Borrowing
  • The number of startups in the sector has tripled in the last two years, according to Brazil’s FinTech association ABFintech
  • “In Latin America and Brazil, a lack of banking services, high demand for credit and historically high interest rates have created a boom for entrepreneurs and investors seeking to develop FinTech market leaders. Thus, the impact from FinTech disruption is expected to be greater in Brazil than in many other countries because of its highly concentrated banking sector.” Financier Worldwide
