About Skillup Africa

We provide Student Loans for young Africans

By establishing a student loan program intended to help young graduates under 30 years of age, who do not have the financial means to pay for tech-focused short and medium term training courses.

This student loan program is focused on building a sustainable tech talent pipeline that will secure economic empowerment for the African continent through human capital development.

It Works

How Much Do You Need?

Skillup Africa student loans have various runtime cycles, based on the duration of the training period as offered by our training partners. We offer a moratorium that covers the duration of the training period, in addition to a 12 week period that allows students find a job.

Our student loans are provided at a 10% p.a. interest rate, which students pay in advance as a commitment fee.

You can use the calculator below to see total loan amount and monthly instalments that will be due. Current calculations are based on 12 month repayment cycle.
