History of WENANCE
Wenance was conceived with the vision of focusing on the underbank – offering a wide financial portfolio for banked or unbanked people.
For several years, founder and current Wenance CEO, Alejandro Muszak, learned about the offline banking industry and in 2014 he decided to take part in the digital revolution. That same year, Wenance officially began operations in Argentina.
The digital technology experience makes Wenance unique as it is positioned as a cutting-edge tech company in the region.
At the end of 2017, as a start-up, it started operations in Uruguay and became the first Fintech company in Argentina in presenting a public personal credit portfolio trust for AR $100 million in the digital market.
Since its disembarkment in Uruguay, it has granted over 33 thousand credits — for a total of 18.8 million dollars.
Globally, Wenance has financed more than 400,000 credits, possesses over 50 million dollars in an active portfolio, and has more than 150 thousand customers. It also provides loans of up to $300,000 for a maximum of 36 instalments with interest rates that vary according to the client's profile ranging from 50% to 100%.
Wenance is the first South American Fintech to migrate its service to the European continent, starting its operations in Spain in October 2018.
Also, aside from Argentina and Uruguay, it recently opened its doors in Mexico.
Wenance focuses its growth on technology evolution and empowers itself with talented software engineers and professionals – this represents their most valuable assets. It has over 400 employees which have increased by more than 50% during 2018. Today, globally, Wenance has a huge base of more than 800 employees, of whom 35 are in their Uruguay headquarters scattered among the commercial team, collections, and back-office monitoring of daily operations.
Wenance's main purpose is to enhance people's life by allowing them to access radical financial services and simplifying their economy.
