Lifestyle based financial assistance platform, Moneta, recently debuted an ingenious product to remove the financial barriers to study whereby students can pursue a professional/educational qualification and pay in 4 instalments, always interest-free.
A first in Sri Lanka, this “Study Now, Pay Later” endeavour is a partnership with the country’s undisputed leader in higher education, Achievers Lanka Business School.
Moneta believes that quality education is a must for a successful life & career. The new scheme is an extension of this thinking, to make higher education accessible to the middle class despite the economic downturn triggered by the pandemic. This endeavour sets out to ease the burden of providing/obtaining a good education off the shoulders of parents & prospective students.
Commenting on the product, Moneta Founder & CEO Kanaganayagham Shayanthan said: “We are excited to be supporting the future generation of Sri Lanka to bring their academic/professional aspirations to fruition through education. This is a brilliant opportunity for anyone looking to further their education but doesn’t have the means to make a substantial investment upfront. We hope our “Study Now Pay Later” service, which is always interest-free, will be especially beneficial and timely under the prevailing economic climate.“
Achievers Lanka Business School Chairman Azad Hye noted: “Under this scheme, prospective learners can follow globally-recognized qualifications such as CIM, CIMA, ACCA etc that will be invaluable in today’s competitive context. We are proud to be partnering with Moneta for this endeavour as our visions align; we strive to disrupt our respective sectors through creative, innovative solutions.” “This pandemic created a lot of new opportunities for millennials. With the right education and support, they can build a flourishing future. We are very proud about this partnership with Achievers, one of Sri Lanka’s top business schools, to create global professionals ready to take on the world.” Shayanthan added.
Achievers is one of the most sought-after institutions for CIM & ACCA. It has an excellent pool of lecturers, and impressive pass rates and offers virtual & physical learning modes to choose from.
Moneta has also upgraded their services portfolio to include a new service whereby customers can use their debit card as a “credit card” when making purchases.
