After finishing high-school, Antonio Gonzalez-Karg, Chief Executive Officer of Mutuo Financiera, volunteered for a NGO with operations in Nairobi, Kenya. There, he interiorized the potential impact of financial technology in people’s lives. In Africa, Antonio witnessed a titanic banking coverage effort using mobile financial technology, when M-Pesa was just starting.
After returning to Mexico, Antonio studied Law at ITAM. During his studies, he briefly worked as a constitutional litigator. He also worked as an analyst for a seed capital fund that financed dozens of technology companies, and whose biggest success was its fintech portfolio. In 2016, after meeting Juan, they decided to incorporate Mutuo.
