Company Details

Update

Vittana makes it possible for young people around the world to get student loans directly from lenders like you.

Vittana envisions a world where students anywhere can get a student loan to attend community college, vocational school or college. This is the #1 thing that families around the world want. If there is one common, universal desire of all people throughout the world, it is to give their children a better chance at life than they had.

When you make a loan on Vittana, you're really doing two things. Yes, you're enabling a student to get a degree and get a job for an immediate, giant step toward a better life. But you're also doing something even bigger: you're proving to the world that education matters and student loans work for one student, one loan, one job at a time. Vittana works in the background to facilitate the loans you make directly to students but also works at the forefront of a global movement to bring student loans to young people throughout the world.
