YAPU Solu­tions

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.
