More information about this loan

This loan is part of Micro Start's higher education program, offering students tuition loans for two-year associates degrees and three-to-five-year bachelor's and graduate-level degrees. Micro Start is partnering with education institutions like the Ecole Superieure de Travaux Publics de Ouagadougou (ESTPO) to identify and provide financing to high-achieving, responsible students who lack the resources to pay for tuition up front. This Kiva loan will be used to provide borrowers with needed goods or services, as opposed to cash or financial credit. These loans have terms ranging from five to ten years and include an upfront fee of 2.5% and an annual interest rate of 5%. They are disbursed at the start of the school year and are repaid monthly with a grace period of two to three years. By supporting this loan, you are helping students with limited options to stay in school, and encouraging Micro Start to roll the program out to more institutions and support even more students.
