These two acquisitions by Te Creemos Holding add up to a portfolio close to 5,000 million pesos, with a presence in 31 states in Mexico.
“Te Creemos and CAME grant microcredits to the popular savings and credit sector under two methodologies: communal banking and individual credit. As they are regulated entities, the two companies capture savings from customers and thereby fund between 40 and 50% of the portfolio, in addition to being diversified with national and international funding ”, Te Creemos Holding explained.
