About us

EPLAR is a non-profit organization whose objective is to actively promote and seek education, planning, and savings for retirement in Mexico. We believe that financial education should reach everyone, regardless of social status or age.

 

EPLAR was created by a group of three young Latin Americans with a high degree of social commitment, who put their ideas together and put them into action thanks to the Shaping Horizons initiative, a project by the University of Cambridge to generate FinTech solutions in Latin America.

 

We believe that one of the most significant challenges facing Mexico and the world is misinformation. That is why we created this initiative to make people aware of the personal and social problems generated by the lack of financial education.

 

What do we do?

 

Financial Education Courses

Our course uses algorithms to determine what the user's learning style is, what topics interest them the most, and how we can help make this the best personal finance course you've ever taken.

We have a financial education program, focused on saving for retirement and we analyze why everyone should worry and take care to know their alternatives for retirement ‚even if you are under 30 years old ...

Dissemination of Public Policies

We are not only interested in financial inclusion or savings for retirement, we also seek to have a frequent connection with experts on different topics of public interest, to be able to visualize structural problems in our society and to be able to start generating a change. We will be promoters of many agents of change!

These collaborations with experts on the subject will be published on our blog, or will also be done through webinars or face-to-face events with universities in the country or interested parties from the private sector.
