Guatemala and the wider Central American region are in great need of payment innovation. Large portions of the population are unbanked or underbanked. Mobile money solutions have made limited inroads into the market. There is a huge reliance on cost effective remittances into the region from the US and elsewhere. For the banked, merchant service charges are often high.
