Lima Citibank Peru, the leader in the Peruvian financial system with an uninterrupted presence of 92 years in the country, is consolidating its corporate payment solutions through the introduction of corporate credit cards in partnership with Visa Inc.
“We see a great opportunity to serve businesses and make a significant contribution to their efficiency processes,” said Ricardo Hesse, Transaction Services Business Director at Citibank Peru. “Citibank Peru’s corporate payment solution will allow companies to optimize their use of resources and expense and report analysis. We are proud to consolidate our business offerings with Visa as a strategic ally.”
