We are acting today

To generate positive impact along with our suppliers

Our goal to democratize consumption and financial access for millions of people in Latin America can be achieved thanks to the joint work of +2,000 enterprises in our supply and service chain. These alliances are essential to overcome geographical, cultural, and financial barriers, and be fast and reliable in reaching those who choose us.

In addition to direct suppliers, we work with a network of IT integration and consulting firms that has been developed to boost the sales of entrepreneurs by offering additional services. In order to expand the network of suppliers committed to generating a positive impact on our value chain, we have created a sustainable purchasing policy and developed training initiatives.

“To us, 'Mide lo que importa' was a fantastic ‘alarm clock’ that gave us the opportunity to ask ourselves how we did what we were doing. At that time, we started our journey to improve our enterprise, measuring our impact and becoming a certified B Corp in 2021.”
