Empowering Financial Inclusion with BRAVE

Credolab and Círculo de Crédito have united to enhance financial inclusion with innovative credit risk and fraud scoring solutions in Mexico.

A vast array of data and metadata resources exists in Mexico. Unfortunately, most remain either under-utilised or completely untouched. To tackle this challenge, this partnership introduces an exclusive Digital Behavioural Analysis Solution, 'BRAVE' – a Behaviour, Risk, Authentication & Validation Engine. 

BRAVE offers a groundbreaking solution that harnesses the power of Behavioural Analytics. It analyses metadata from applicants' digital behaviours and uncovers invaluable behavioural insights to enhance risk and fraud assessments.
