YAPU Solutions is a young, Berlin-based fintech with strong ethical and business values. We make it our mission to address climate change-related challenges in developing countries. We achieve this by offering SaaS solutions to microfinance institutions and banks that enable them to digitalize their processes, better understand risk and offer better, more affordable products to their smallholder farmer clients. We assist the financial sector on this journey by providing targeted consulting services on the topics of green and climate-smart finance. We lay the foundations for triple bottom line reporting and improve access to finance in developing countries. With a second office in Ecuador, our current operations cover Costa Rica, Colombia, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Guatemala as well as Benin, Senegal and Burkina Faso.
