EDFIN MICROFINANCE BANK

Posted By Graymatterscap On Thu, Oct 10, 2019

EdFin Microfinance Bank was birthed out of the need for quality education in Nigeria. The bank, which is dedicated solely to funding the education eco-space in Nigeria, aims to positively disrupt the standard and quality of education in the country, by providing much-needed financial resources and services to the education sector. 

Founded in collaboration with Gray Matter Capital, EdFin is focused on facilitating a more enabling environment for private schools in order for them to be able to offer quality education that would ensure improved learning outcomes in such schools.
