How was Zunify born?

We were born in 2019 when our founder found himself long in disdain for using cash and having a wallet overflowing with all kinds of plastic cards, from loyalty programs and coupons to credit and debit cards, not to mention that endless collection of receipts taking up unnecessary space.

We founded our company in the United States and decided to enter the Costa Rican market due to its high banking level, before expanding internationally. As of today, we have been growing and we have the support of global investment funds, which have joined our mission to create a sustainable and fair unified financial system.

Our success comes when everyone has access to more financial resources easily and safely. That's why our network is the only one that provides all affiliated businesses, banks and fintechs with the tools to design and issue any payment product with added value in an immediate and regulated way.

Why is Zunify better for the environment than other financial options?

In 2019, there were around 22 billion payment cards in circulation around the world. The processes related to production, packaging and transportation of these cards generate 1.8 million tons of CO2. Around 1,930 square miles of forest area are needed to capture that amount of CO2.

We provide a solution to the environmental impact generated by the plastic card industry, since our services do not require these tools. Soon, users will be able to request the opening of debit and credit accounts through Zunify, so they can choose to renounce plastic and be part of the change.
