8B Education Investments and Nelnet Bank have joined forces to create an innovative loan program for African students studying at universities in the United States. This partnership aims to overcome the financial barriers that African students face when pursuing education abroad. Lydiah Kemunto Bosire, the CEO of 8B Education Investments, is excited about this initiative and believes it will provide African students with access to world-class education opportunities. By collaborating with Nelnet Bank, 8B Education Investments hopes to bridge the gap and support the underserved pool of talented African students.
Nelnet Bank has committed $30 million to originate loans for 8B’s lending program. This collaboration is part of 8B Education Investments’ commitment to accelerating African access to global innovation ecosystems, which was showcased at the 2022 meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative. Andrea Moss, the CEO/President of Nelnet Bank, expresses pride in partnering with 8B Education Investments to help African students overcome financing challenges and pursue their academic dreams in the US. Moss believes in the transformative power of diversity and education and looks forward to supporting more students in the future.
