Making Students Atmanirbhar | Kuhoo
India believes every citizen has a fundamental right to education, but making this happen requires more than just building education infrastructure. The country must also enable access to finance to pay for world-class education.
Kuhoo is a fintech startup solving this problem at scale using technology. They are in the business of lending to students for their education.
And while there are plenty of companies giving loans to students who are joining tier 1 colleges in India or abroad, Kuhoo is catering to the long tail of students beyond just tier 1 colleges.
Prashant is a veteran of the lending industry, having a track record of building up HDFC’s student lending business with some enviable numbers.
Prashant talks about the evolution of lending in India through his multi-decade experience and offers fascinating insights about using first principles to disrupt the traditional way of doing business.
