Explaining how the app works, the co-founder said that the company has tied up with multiple finance companies, who offer loans to parents through with they can pay their children’s fees. After paying the fees through the bank, parents can repay the amount to the banks in monthly installments.


“At present several finance companies give loans to people to even purchase a phone, then why should there be loan options to meet the basic need of students. This is how we started this startup. At present, our company is typing with top finance companies and offering the facility for students and parents to pay their child fees in easy installments, ” said Bharat S Krishnan.

Three years ago, the company started with an investment of Rs 1 crore. The founders of the company claim that the app is getting a good response from both educational institutions and parents.
