What does the student loan cover?
The student loan may cover all education-related expenses, subject to InvestEd’s approval. This may include tuition, daily stipend, miscellaneous school fees, dorm expenses and more.
How much can I borrow?
Student applicants can receive as much as ₱100,000 for their loan, depending on their application credit scoring, financial need, year in school, and other factors.
How long is the application processing time?
Ultimately this will depend on the volume of applications in every cycle. On average, we process and give results within 5-7 working days.
How do I receive my loan funds?
Tuition is directly paid by InvestEd to your school. The remaining loan amount is released on a per need basis or in scheduled disbursements. For school materials/equipment, we require a canvass report before disbursement and proof of purchase after disbursement.
Are there any fees associated with my loan?
Yes, InvestEd charges a 20% service fee that is also payable after graduation. For example, if your loan amount is ₱30,000.00, our service fee is ₱6,000.00 (20% of ₱30,000.00). This fee covers your loan administration and training program costs, and InvestEd’s operating expenses, ensuring our sustainability for future borrowers like you.
How much is the interest?
At InvestEd, your loan will interest at 1.67-2.9% per month. This is cheaper than most private lenders who have rates of 3% up to 10% per month, and often require payment to start immediately.
How much will my monthly installments be after graduation?
Your monthly installment will depend on your principal loan amount, graduation year, and payment term. You can check our sample monthly payments below, which assumes a 2.9% per month interest rate for a student loaning for their final year.
