LatAm List – Credijusto offers asset-backed loans and equipment leases to SMEs in Mexico, a market currently underserved by traditional financial services. Founded in 2015, Credijusto has raised over $150M to date from top investors such as Kaszek Ventures and QED Investors.
Their most recent round was led by Goldman Sachs and Point72 Ventures, with support from Thomvest Ventures, Wolfson Group, Third Lake Capital, and Argo Ventures. This round comes less than five months after Credijusto closed a $100M credit agreement with Goldman Sachs.
