Idea

We focus on loans and invoice discounting for SMEs.

Current Status

2015 In Chile
2018 In Perú
100% CAGR
Through RedCapital, SMEs have received around hundred and thirty million dollars, and reduced their financial costs by thirty-seven percent.
Our investors receive a eleven percent return per year.
Our risk predictor has resulted in our having a 1.1 percent default record
As a result, we have been rewarded by several prestigious institutions in Chile and abroad.

Market

In the countries we will focus we estimate a Market of $60B.This is based on loans and factoring to SMEs through financial institutions other than Banks. Those institutions charge Small Businesses much more than Banks. We help them to get better rates in Chile and Perú. Latin America’s high-volume markets include Chile, Mexico, and Brazil.

Investors of redcapital.cl & redcapital.pe:
Investors are Individuals, family office or institutional investor (funds). This year, 46% of investments on RedCapital are from institutional investors (funds).

Problem or Opportunity

Small businesses have a little credit line on banks. So, they have higher rates in other financial institutions. SMEs in Latin America struggle to grow because accessing credit continues to be a highly formalized and bureaucratic process. There is an SME credit gap of $250B in Latin America with two million SMEs reported as being un-served or underserved. The average interest rate charged by banks to SMEs is generally higher to countries in Latin America in comparison to other regions such as the U.S.

Solution (product or service)
