Ibancar, the wealth consumer credit platform, signed its first line of institutional debt for € 10 million. The company is growing rapidly in Spain and now plans to expand its business in Mexico and launch other auto-related credit products.

The facility was led by global venture capitalist and private credit investor Knuru Capital.

The facility will complement Ibancar’s existing and ongoing debt financing in the equity lending markets, where it has built one of the strongest origins as an originator providing high returns to investors with exceptionally low credit losses.

Alex Melis, Founder and CEO of Ibancar, said: “We believe that most of the products in the online consumer credit market do not solve the borrower problem and the only way to solve this problem is to offer longer, larger, cheaper and more transparent loans. The only inclusive and ethical way to provide such loans is through the use of collateral. We are extremely proud of our success and plan to expand our product offering to include car-backed credit cards as well as B2C and C2C secure automotive financing for markets. We also intend to launch Ibancar in Mexico in 2022. ”
