Credivalores-Crediservicios SA Obtains Financing of $100 Million
Muñoz Aya advised Credivalores-Crediservicios SA (Credivalores) on the provision of a $100 million collateralised credit facility.
Latham & Watkins and Gómez-Pinzón represented the lenders, UBS O’Connor and Gramercy, while Clifford Chance also advised Credivalores.
Credivalores is a leading non-bank financial firm in Colombia that provides payroll and consumer loans services primarily intended to serve low- and middle-income individuals.

The transaction includes loans provided directly to a special purpose trust established to purchase loan assets from Crediuno. In addition, the credit facility includes a novel borrowing structure with features focused on the verification and auditing of the loan origination process as well as Credivalores’ corporate governance.
Muñoz Aya advised Credivalores with a team comprising partners Edgar Muñoz and Lina Lineros and associates Gabriel Contreras, Alejandra Restrepo and Daniela Hoyos.
