SMBs

In the announcement, Tribal noted the growing volume of transactions by SMBs. According to the details shared by the company, almost 62 million SMBs are conducting transactions every year. With approximately $175 billion market opportunity, Latin America is one of the biggest markets for small and medium businesses. The fintech platform offers SMBs in emerging markets access to physical and virtual corporate cards.

“Tribal is using crypto to fundamentally change the rules of the game for payments and lending. Very few companies can bridge TradFi and Defi in such an innovative, yet seamless way. We are incredibly excited to be partnering with Amr and the team as they expand credit for small businesses in emerging markets,” Shu Nyatta, the Managing Partner of SoftBank Latin America Fund, said in the press release.
