The Story of WeMakeScholars:
What pushed us to start WeMakeScholars? What were the challenges faced by our founders as international students abroad? What forms the crux of our organization? An explanation for these points is provided at the beginning of this episode.
When should you consider NBFCs as an option?
Although many of you are aware of unsecured education loan, do you know when to consider private banks/ NBFCs as an option? Should you apply for an unsecured education loan with an NBFC just because their process is simpler? What other important points should you consider before fixing on NBFCs? Alarming facts, right? But many a time, students fail to think on such lines before deciding to approach a private bank/NBFC for unsecured education loans. Know more about this from Damini, co-founder of WeMakeScholars and the speaker of this episode.
Factors considered for approval:
Are you aware that the interest rates stated by certain private banks and NBFCs are not applicable to all candidates? Did you know that parameters like interest rates, processing fees, etc. are not the same for all NBFCs? Know what factors are considered by these money lending institutions before they approve an unsecured abroad education loan, in this part of the episode.
Why applicants choose NBFCs for unsecured education loan?
Terms like faster processing time, lesser paperwork, etc. may sound really appealing to many of you. These are also some of the many common reasons why applicants generally opt for an NBFC. But how many of you are aware of the status of these NBFCs in the financial market? Are you sure NBFCs are the safest when it comes to unsecured education loans? This part of the episode helps you understand more about this.
Why go for WeMakeScholars?
Did you know that our candidates get to avail up to 1% waiver on the interest rates? Also, as WeMakeScholars is an initiative under the Digital India Programme, we do not charge any service fee. Which means that our services are free of cost.

The Hack & Conclusion
NBFCs ask for co-applicants ITR i.e. (Income Tax Returns) of about 2 years or sometimes even 3 years. What should be done in a scenario where you are in need of an unsecured education loan, and you do not have a co-applicant with the correct ITR documents?
