Prodigy Finance

Prodigy Finance is a marketplace that provides a platform where alumni invest in students at the world's top business schools. Through the online platform, a community of alumni and other investors earn low risk, competitive returns, while postgraduate students gain access to higher education they otherwise might not have been able to finance.

Prodigy Finance considers itself a social enterprise. A large number of its student borrowers come from developing world countries. The majority of these students then return to their home countries after graduation—bringing back global business networks and learnings to develop their home regions.
