Claudia Quintanilla, Mateu Batle Sastre and Matías Maciel created fintech in 2016 in Peru. They are looking to hit $4 billion in transactions this year, counting from when they started.
So far, the company claims to have already reached one million operations and more than $2.4 billion in transactions. It also has in-house developed tools such as factoring, Dollar Analytics, Rextie Business and an alliance with Visa.
Through this alliance, Rextie was able to implement technology so that currency exchange could be done only through its app. Before that, you had to use two different applications (Rextie and digital bank).
In September 2021, CEO Matias Maciel said that a remittance service would be launched in the first quarter of 2022. Through it, customers could receive remittances ranging from $200 to $5,000 on average.
