“The main destination of this financing will be to continue evolving the used home buying and selling experience through technology and innovation. Now, with the support of Bancóldex, we will bring even more agility and liquidity for Colombian families who deserve to see efficiencies in an industry that is traditionally slow and clouded by procedures and paperwork,» said Sebastián Noguera, president and co-founder of Habi, adding that «we are sure that this agreement is only the beginning of an alliance that will benefit thousands of Colombian families”.
