Bonanza’s Mission for Financial Inclusion
Bonanza targets Mexicans lacking a credit history, offering their first banking experience and access to financial products. Primarily catering to the youth segment, Bonanza combines credit opportunities with financial education, guiding users towards achieving economic goals while building a solid credit reputation.

The Three-Tier Virtual Credit Card System
The virtual credit cards, provided in partnership with Pomelo, are categorized into three levels, adapting to users’ evolving financial needs and credit history. The entry-level ‘Access’ card aims to initiate credit history creation responsibly. As users progress, they can access cards with enhanced benefits and higher credit limits, tailored to their improved financial standing.

Pomelo’s Integral Role in Launch
Pomelo’s technological support has been crucial in this launch. Through their Cards solution, Bonanza efficiently processes card transactions. Pomelo’s bin sponsorship, backed by Mastercard, and their advanced fraud prevention tools have further strengthened the product’s integrity. Additionally, Pomelo’s credit engine aids in credit management, simplifying interest calculations and providing transparent account statements for Bonanza and its clients.

Future Developments and Acknowledgments
Beyond these virtual cards, Bonanza and Pomelo plan to introduce physical card versions shortly. David Peralta, CEO & Founder of Bonanza, highlights Pomelo’s indispensable contribution to the project, praising their support in expediting market entry and navigating the launch process.

This collaboration between Bonanza and Pomelo represents a leap forward in fintech, blending innovative financial solutions with a strong commitment to enhancing financial literacy and accessibility in Mexico. The initiative stands as a model of how technology can be leveraged to bridge financial gaps and empower young consumers in the financial landscape.
