GyanDhan's Impact Stories


Empowering students to overcome education loan obstacles

Defying the Odds: How a Student with Poor Credit Score Secured an Education Loan

A student had been applying for an education loan through various lenders, such as HDFC Credila and Auxilo, but was declined by all due to their poor credit score. Fortunately, their fortunes took a turn for the better when they came to GyanDhan, and we were able to secure their education loan through Avanse, even without an offer letter from the university. Given the student's financially weaker background, we also negotiated with the bank on the processing fee. Eventually, the student paid a portion of the processing fee upfront and the rest after receiving their admission letter.

From Rejection to Success: How a Student with Backlogs Secured an Education Loan

A student with over 5 backlogs during their graduation was facing difficulties securing a loan due to the lack of collateral or a co-applicant. Despite applying to multiple banks and NBFCs, they were rejected by more than 3 institutions. Fortunately, the student reached out to Gyandhan, who connected them with Avanse. Based on the student's bank statement and GRE score of 304, the loan was successfully sanctioned and disbursed to the customer.

Meeting Urgent Education Funding Needs in a Tight 5-Day Window

The customer, faced with an imminent deadline of paying university fees within 5 days, approached us with a pressing requirement for an education loan. This tight timeline left no room for delays. Despite the challenges posed by the UK country context and the co-applicants' constrained income coupled with pending loans, we were resolute in our determination to assist. We expedited the process by promptly connecting the customer with Avanse. In 3 days, we secured a loan sanction aligned with the customer's urgent timeline. Subsequently, we streamlined the disbursement process, ensuring the customer had the necessary funds in due time. As a result, the customer successfully paid their university fees on the 5th day, as required.
