Immigranted’s mission is to provide interest-free, micro-loans to first and second-generation immigrants seeking or achieving higher education.
Financial problems are the number one reason students cite for dropping out of college. Immigrant students are particularly at risk, with between 32 and 38 percent of Asian and Latino undergrads being in the lowest socioeconomic bracket in the US. To do our part in helping positively influence the immigrant community, we created a non-profit organization called Immigranted. Our mission is to provide interest free, micro-loans to first and second-generation immigrants seeking or achieving higher education.
Our micro-loans are designed to provide these at-risk achievers with funding for necessities that usually fall outside of a scholarship or traditional student loans - books, supplies, rent, parking, meal plans, etc. - that no student can do without. These necessities can be surprises to families struggling to make it.
We are able to scale the program with an infinity lending model which takes the payments of the last student recipient and invests those payments directly into new loans for the next student recipient.
With economic disparity becoming wider and education slowly becoming exclusive to the privileged - our country is missing out on the potential students that can be our future leaders in technology, medicine, law, business, engineering and the arts. Further, investing in our youth makes our communities and country stronger. Please join us and together we can build a better future immigrant students.
Immigranted is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible. We are supported by a network of passionate volunteers ensuring all funding goes directly to those in need.
