FintekNews is devoted to assisting the fintech industry evolve, and we recently received information on a new integration program targeting fintechs from around the world to integrate with financial institution in Latin America and the Caribbean

In fact, Latin America is absolutely ripe for fintech disruption.  We have seen so much innovation pop up in underbanked markets in Asia and Africa, but seldom see Latin and South America coverage.  We encourage interested fintechs and banks from around the world serving this region to get involved with this program.
