Zimbabwe-based education access and people improvement company, Educate, has partnered with, SympliFi, a UK-based Fintech company to enable Zimbabweans living in the United Kingdom to invest in the education of their loved ones back home.
Educate provides easily accessible and affordable financing solutions to enable students to attend any one of its 53 education institution partners across Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Zambia and South Africa.
Knowing the difficulties Zimbabweans face in obtaining finance, Educate partnered with SympliFi to enable Zimbabweans in the U.K to serve as guarantors for education loans. SympliFi’s digital service enables the diaspora to complete the guarantor process in a matter of minutes on their phone or computer; and most importantly, it is a fee-free service for the guarantor
The service is set to benefit Zimbabwean’s with children attending any of Educate’s education institution partners beginning in August.
“We are always looking for more ways to improve people’s lives and our partnership with SympliFi will help advance our mission of improving access to quality education for Zimbabweans,” stated Terrence Mugova, co-founder and managing director of Educate. “We are so excited that we no longer have to turn away potential customers and can now help a larger part of the population, without any barriers or borders.”
We are excited about entering the Zimbabwean market with Educate and to support their important mission of increasing access to education. We believe the diaspora are eager to find new and innovative ways to support the economic empowerment of their loved ones back home, and the country in general. We believe education is an integral part of that support,” said Maurice Iwunze, co-founder of SympliFi.
