Providing low-income patients with affordable quality healthcare
Many people in Mexico suffer from a severe lack of healthcare access. Estimates show that current government-owned healthcare services should be three times larger to address these existing needs. This situation leads to substantial delays, with many people going untreated each year.
Salud Fácil serves as an intermediary between low-income populations, low-cost but qualitative private hospitals and clinics and financial institutions. It offers a credit marketplace providing individuals with low-cost credit to allow them to enter hospitals and clinics with excess capacity.
Salud Fácil has partnered with government-owned institution InFonacot, providing a credit application process to low-income populations, through which they may be eligible for low-cost financing from InFonacot. More recently, Salud Fácil has launched a new healthcare equipment leasing service for doctors, clinics and hospitals, which has been growing rapidly.
KOIS invested in Salud Fácil in 2016 because it addresses people at the bottom of the pyramid’s growing need for affordable yet qualitative healthcare.
