In Lana we want to provide accessible financial services through technology to traditionally underserved customers in LATAM, starting with gig-economy workers.

To do so, we have created a platform with an app that allows users to get access to tailored-made financial services in one single place and take control of their money to do great things with it. 

Lana is currently operating in Mexico and Chile, but we have created a technological platform that would help us start operations in other countries in LATAM very soon. 

We closed our funding round early this year that would allow us to improve our technology, expand our product offering, and continue growing and expanding into new markets. We are officially approved in Mexico as a financial institution by Comisión Nacional Bancaria y de Valores. 

Would you like to join us in this challenge?
