The accelerated growth of e-commerce in Mexico, combined with the young Mexican population, which lacks access to traditional financial products, boosted the company’s growth, said co-founder and CEO of KueskiAdalberto Flores Ochoa.

Our goal is to connect the whole Mexican retail economy without requiring consumers to have a bank account, a credit card, or credit history. By using Kueski Pay, consumers can defer the costs of payment over time without expensive credit cards or bank loans, and merchants can tap into a whole new market and boost their sales," Flores added to his statement.

Jim Lim, Partner at StepStone Group, stated that the opportunities in the BNPL sector in Mexico and the rest of Latin America are exciting and that the firm is delighted to be partnering with one of the market leaders in the region.

As of now, it is not in the plans of Kueski to expand to other regions of Latin America but CEO Flores does not rule out the possibility in the future.

Kueski is the largest Buy-Now-Pay-Later (BNPL) and online consumer lending company in Latin America, providing financial services to consumers through three innovative products: Kueski Pay (BNPL), Kueski Cash (personal loans), and Kueski Up (salary advances). Founded in 2012 with the mission of making the financial lives of people in Mexico easier, Kueski leverages the use of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Big Data to expand access to traditional financial products and services.
