Propelld’s Study Abroad Loans cater to a diverse range of individuals, including meritorious students seeking admission to all types of institutions, employed individuals seeking expedited financing processes, and SME and MSME owners as well as self-employed individuals. The company’s collateral-free loan offerings ensure quick approvals and minimal documentation requirements, facilitating a hassle-free experience for borrowers.

In a strategic move to expand its reach, Propelld has partnered with Educational Direct Selling Agents (DSA) and Education Loan DSAs, aiming to extend financing options to a wider audience. Ravi Goyal, VP – Strategy at Propelld, highlighted the mutual benefits of these alliances, stating, “The lower turnaround time and broad scope also helps them to cater to broader profiles of employed and self-employed people.”
