Here’s a quick illustration of how women applicants can benefit from this unique offer.

Avanse has always celebrated the power of women and, in the past, has introduced various offers such as waiving off a certain amount of EMIs, offering attractive interest rates, cashback offers and many more. The organisation introduced a similar scheme last year, facilitating education financing solutions to around 1,000+ female aspirants. During the entire year (YTD FY23), Avanse provided education financing to ~3,600 female aspirants, which is 30% of the total students funded. The NBFC has always been focused on building a more equitable and inclusive society where women can thrive and succeed.
Commenting on this initiative, Mr. Amit Gainda, Managing Director and CEO, Avanse Financial Services, said, “To celebrate International Women’s Day and to salute the power of womanhood, we have designed this special offer for female aspirants so that they can pursue their higher education independently. We strongly believe in one of the famous sayings that if you educate a man, you educate an individual. But if you educate a woman, you educate a nation. Educating women results in empowered families, stronger societies, a knowledgeable economy and, ultimately, a prosperous nation.”
