Building an ecosystem to ease financial and insurance needs of international students
Pax Credit was conceived to improve financial services for international students across the world. The inefficiencies in transferring money abroad, cross-border student loans, and lack of affordable health insurance products to international students provided Pax Credit with an opportunity to offer a novel service to streamline educational remittances, cross-border student loans and price health insurance accurately.
The founding team has self-experienced the nuances of studying abroad and believe unwaveringly in improving the financial services for international students.
