    Mariana Franza, Uala - If you are not in the traditional banking system, you cannot have Netflix (S2E46)

    In this episode, we explore the Latin American FinTech ecosystem through a conversation with Mariana Franza, Chief Operating Officer at Uala, a fintech app focused on driving financial inclusion. Founded in 2017 in Argentina, Uala started as a payment wallet, and has just obtained a banking license in its home market. Uala expanded to Mexico in 2020, where it is also currently in the process of acquiring a bank, and to Colombia in 2022, where it applied for a banking license organically.

    "65% of our active users have never had a credit history."

    "Cash is our worst enemy since it does not allow an economy to develop."

    "In 2021, we digitalized USD 1bn in Argenina."

    "Our lending facility grew 24 time year-on-year, even in a high inflationary environment."

    "Of Latin America's 650m population, 25 percent are deemed as 'young', and approximately 50% are unbanked."

    Bruno Diniz, Spiralem - Pioneering is hard but it pays off: A deep dive into Brazil FinTech (S2E42)

    In this episode, we are going to take a close look at the FinTech ecosystem in Brazil. If you have not had this market on your radar screen yet, that likely changed with the record-breaking IPO of Nubank on the New York Stock Exchange towards the end of last year, making the company the largest digital banking platform outside of Asia.

    The second focus of our conversation will be the work of the Brazilian Central Bank, which has been executing on a variety of initiatives at once, from Open Banking to a fast payments system called PIX, to a pilot of a central bank digital currency to commence soon.

    Bruno Diniz is a partner at Spiralem Innovation Consulting, and Director of the Financial Data & Technology Association (FDATA) for Latin America. Bruno is also a columnist for magazines such as Exame magazine, FEBRABAN's Noomis portal and Cointelegraph, in addition to being a professor of innovation focused on the financial market at the USP/ESALQ MBA, speaker and author of the books "O Fenômeno Fintech" and " The New Financial Logic".
