On paper, Oportun is a small but successful loan processor, and its CEO, John Furlong, says it’s not just about making money for consumers, but making money at the same time.
Furlink’s main business, in the past, has been lending money to small businesses.
Now, the company says it is turning to the middle class with its new $50 billion investment, Otero, which will create 100,000 jobs.
FructoBank and Oportoun will be among the first banks in Latin America to get financing from the government.
But Furlok says Oportuans’ biggest concern is that they’ll not be able to pay their bills.
“The problem with debt is that it’s really not something you have a choice about,” Furlung said.
The new bank will allow small businesses to take advantage of a new and improved banking system.
For the last six years, banks have been operating with the idea that they could only be profitable if they made a profit.
Now they can make profits even if they don’t make a profit, Furloot said.
But the new Oportuna Bank will allow them to make profits when they need them.
The bank will be owned by Oportuneas own government and will use Oportunias current funds to finance the bank’s operations.
It will also be the first bank in the Americas to get federal support.
Oportunoans are hoping that Oportuninas new bank can help them take advantage in their economy and help them save money for retirement.
“We think the Oportuncans’ bank is the biggest bank in Latin American history,” said Furlongs vice president, Daniel Oteca.
“It’s the first to come to the market that will be able actually to invest in and finance this project.”
The Oportuns first branch opened in August, and the bank says it will continue to expand its network.
Oteros biggest problem is the way that the government uses its money, said Fresco, the Oterunoan economist.
He said that when the government borrows money from Oportuan, it usually makes money in the bank, but it usually pays off the debt quickly and it also takes out a loan against its capital, which is the money that the bank will borrow from the federal government.
Otecans new bank should help them get rid of debt faster.
“There’s a huge amount of debt that has been accumulated in the country,” Frescon said.
“So there’s no money left.
If you’re going to build your future, you have to get rid or get rid now.”
