How it all began?
Two women engineers dreamed of changing the situation with getting education for poor students.
Studying in college, they witnessed how many of their peers dropped out of school due to lack of money to pay for tuition.
They wondered why most student loans require immediate repayment. It is logical to assume that during the training the students cannot pay the loans and it is reasonable to give him a deferral of payments until the end of the education. It was with this curious thought that they began to promote their financial organization. Their business solves an important social problem – it helps underprivileged students break the cycle of poverty.
Indeed, 76% of Filipino employers exclusively hire people with higher education, but only 10% of Filipinos have it because of the high costs. Education loans are not accessible to all people, because financial institutions consider them hopeless due to lack of credit history and solvency.
This is how InvestEd appeared.
