Words From our Founder

Manu Smadja, CEO and co-founder of MPOWER Financing

“We started offering loans to DACA students because we wanted to help them overcome all the hurdles they face: they can’t access federal loans or grants, and their parents often have limited credit history, which can preclude them from qualifying as co-signers on a private loan. That made our no-cosigner loan a perfect fit.”
