Summary

Description

Turaco is changing healthcare financing in the developing world. Emerging consumers cannot get the care they want and need because they lack access to affordable insurance products and financing. Turaco creates simplified insurance and credit solutions distributed through mobile technology to uniquely solve the healthcare financing needs of emerging customers.
