September will be an exciting month for Aflore, with BBVA Open Talent Award and Colombia Start-up Summit ahead.
We are proud to announce that Aflore has been nominated for the BBVA Open Talent Award. Now in its’ 7th year, the BBVA Open Talent competition seeks to support the brightest and best among fintech start-ups around the world. Aflore has been chosen as one of the 15 Latam finalists for its innovative concept of bringing financial services to the living room of the underbanked in Latin America. Aflore finds and trains people who are the natural informal advisor on financial matters in their communities, and provides them with tablets and phones so they can help their community access microloans and insurances through Aflore’s online platform.
