Don't worry, we speak : Español (Spanish), too!

Contxto – Every week there are headlines about some Brazilian or Mexican fintech paving new foundations for financial inclusion. While this is always wonderful news, many small countries are often overlooked. 

Perhaps out of all of Latin America, Paraguay may be the most overshadowed by its larger and more active neighbors, Brazil and Argentina.

While it’s certainly famous for its appetite for beef, the Guayani language and football fandom, the landlocked country also boasts a handful of startups developing some promising fintech solutions.

Suffer no more. We all know taxes can be worse than visiting the dentist. However, the process doesn’t have to be that bad. TAXit helps users take care of their personal finances and file their taxes with no hassle.
