India, December 2020: Credin Shiksha is the need of the hour solution for the education ecosystem. The unprecedented crisis has transported age-old educational practices to the digital world. Credin is a fintech platform and Credin Shiksha is its flagship programme . The platform enables parents to pay schools fees in affordable easy month installments and ensures timely fee payment to school in the time of liquidity crunch.
Indian parents spend 15-20% of their monthly income on children’s education, and the pandemic has severely affected the power of expenditure. COVID-19 prompted the employers to issue several pay cuts and even layoffs, and with the education going online, the prices of home-setups severely affected parents with the limited home income. Credin Shiksha has partnered with 200+ pre-schools, schools, and education institutes across 8 states in the south and west region of India to roll-out this program. Credin Shiksha has impacted 22,000+ parents to pay school fees monthly at no extra cost which helped them to continue with their child’s education digitally.
