In 2020, the company expanded its operations and entered the markets of the United States and Panama. Despite its strong commercial performance, the rapid growth of the company created a need for additional working capital. This capital was essential to support the company’s operations, including hiring more staff, expanding facilities, and purchasing necessary equipment.
To address this need, the founders approached their primary bank in search of financing options, such as Factoring, Confirming, or other financial solutions that could facilitate their continued growth in response to the market’s accelerated demands.
However, despite its good commercial performance, due to the accelerated growth of the company, it found itself in the need to access working capital to leverage its operations that required an increase in personnel, plant expansion and purchase of equipment. Therefore, the founders go to their main bank in search of financing options, Factoring, Confirming or any financial figure that could help them continue growing at the accelerated and demanding pace that the market proposed to them.
However, despite the company’s strong financial standing, evident from the active movements in its accounts and the stability provided by support contracts, the bank refused to issue a business credit card. The manager’s response at the time was that they would reconsider the request once the company reached three years of operation.
This experience led Andrés, Alejandra, and Peter to recognize a widespread issue. They realized that the challenge they faced was not unique to their software company but affected numerous businesses in Colombia, as well as 61% of companies across Latin America.
As a result, in 2021, the Efinti business unit was established. Its primary goal is to eliminate this barrier to financing access for early-stage, growing, and consolidating MSMEs in Colombia and Latin America.
EFINTI’s mission is to provide value to MSMEs through the provision of liquidity for their operations with the possibility of Factoring and Confirming using technological tools such as those presented on the Efinti® platform.
