Kenyan startup Ed Partners Africa, a non-banking financial institution serving affordable private schools, has raised US$1.9 million in funding as it bids to improve the quality of education received by learners from low-income communities.

Founded in 2018 by Lydia Koros and David FitzHerbert to improve access to affordable, quality education in Africa, Ed Partners provides loans to affordable private schools by bringing access to formal credit to their doorstep.
