Lou Amayo of the FTMBA 2019 program joins us on this episode to discuss her passion for leveraging Fintech to drive impact into emerging markets and economies. She comes from an industrial engineering background in Peru, where she worked to improve operations for manufacturing processes for a pharmaceutical company.
Lou later joined a Fintech company focused on generating credit scores for people in developing countries without credit history by using alternative data such as psychometrics to better understand and gauge a person’s ability to repay a loan. Her work brought her all over Central and South America, and her internship this summer expands her horizon to multiple countries in Africa.
Lou also shares her experiences at Haas thus far and how Haas has helped shape her to become more entrepreneurial-minded and encouraged her to engage with Haas startups.
