We can all agree that navigating the U.S. financial system as an immigrant is not easy. This can be due to two main reasons: because it is a completely different system from our origin countries and the lack of accessible resources in our native language. Fortunately for us and our community, there are people like Carolina Weber and Natalia Duarte who are working together to change this and helping our community navigate the financial system. In this episode, Natalia and Carolina share their money journey and also tell us about “Dyneri”, a useful platform for Latinos to become more financially literate in a way they can relate to.
Natalia Duarte was born in Colombia and holds a BA from Harvard College and MBA from Wharton. She currently manages strategy and operations for New Verticals at DoorDash and is building Dyneri alongside Carolina.
Carolina Weber is a first-generation Mexican American. She graduated from Harvard College and most recently, The Wharton School where she got her MBA. She is working in big tech as a Product Strategist and concurrently is co-building Dyneri with co-founder Natalia.

- The two things that need to change when it comes to the student loan debt crisis.
- What “Dyneri” is and what inspired the name
