Eduloan Requirements

EduLoan (now known as Fundi,) is South Africa’s leading education finance and education-driven fund management institution.

Established in 1996, the institution focuses primarily on providing funds for education and has assisted over 850 000 students.

The institution has administered over R3 billion in bursary funds and offers educational loans for all levels of tuition. It covers outstanding balances ad registration fees and helps to pay for all study-related items.

Eduloan provides cover for tuition, accommodation, study material like books, laptops etc.

The institution does this at the lowest possible interest rates. If you are a student with no form of consistent income, the loan must be taken out in the name of your guardian or sponsor.
