Telefonica has set up a joint venture with Spanish bank BBVA to develop a consumer loan business in Colombia, confirming earlier reports. The company will be called Movistar Money Colombia, jointly controlled on a 50-50 basis, and will sell loans to Telefonica's 19 million-plus residential and business customers in Colombia, said the partners, who have already conducted a 6-month commercial pilot among a base of over 300,000 Movistar Colombia customers to test the service.
