CajaVecina is a Company that allows Chile to be a more inclusive country, by offering financial opportunities to those who don’t have access. They provide financial and non-financial solutions, that improve in a significant way, the quality of life of the people residing in their country. Before their founding, people from isolated communities needed to travel long distances and spend a significant amount of their earnings to run a small errand. They are now in every small town, city, and region of Chile making a significant change in the lives of the Chilean population. CajaVecina was founded with the goal of offering an innovative system that provides financial and non-financial solutions. However, their mission has always been more than that. They are a company that seeks to connect and to improve the lives of many who didn’t have a choice when it came to everyday errands, so insignificant to many but very important to others (the elderly, people in isolated and vulnerable communities, and people in cities with high population).
