About this loan

Fundación CREHO (Honduran Foundation for Educational Loans) is a lending institution founded in 2002 in Tegucigalpa that focuses exclusively on student loans. It aims to be the leading private lending organization offering education loans in the country, contributing to the transformation of Honduras by supporting the training of qualified people.

Kiva funding will be used to support three different types of loans: university degrees, technical and vocational degree programs, and school supplies such as laptops and textbooks. Partnering with Kiva will allow Fundación CREHO to offer long-term, low interest loans with less stringent guarantee requirements to students who otherwise have almost no options to finance their education. Furthermore, at least one-third of Kiva funding will help the organization target students from low-income households and who lack the collateral generally required for these loans.

Please note that Fundación CREHO is a non-traditional Field Partner, in that they are a student lender, not a microfinance institution. Loans to students attending a university degree program may have terms up to 10 years and lenders should not expect to receive payments while the student is still attending the university (4-5 years). In addition, payment plans are uploaded to Kiva for the full tuition cost, however if for any reason the full amount is not needed to complete the degree program, the unused balance will be repaid to lenders as a pre-payment as early as possible.
