“We’re honored by the industry recognition we’ve received, and the hundreds of heartfelt stories we get from students whom we have the privilege to serve,” says Manu Smadja, Co-founder and CEO of MPOWER. “We’re working hard to further improve our customer experience and to remain the best international student lending product on the market”.

MPOWER Financing cares deeply about education. In fact, we’ve put all our effort into international education since MPOWER was founded in 2014. It takes a lot of time and energy to meet our goals, but we’re glad that we’re making our dream come true.

After all our work to remove financial barriers for international students, we’re thrilled to be awarded as the best choice of international student loans in 2019 by U.S. News & World Report. U.S. News & World Report is a highly regarded American media company that publishes news, opinion, consumer advice, rankings, and analysis. And its rankings for private student loans were based on product offerings, customer service ratings, eligibility, cost, and more. MPOWER is honored to be recognized!



At MPOWER, we work hard to fulfill every student’s dream and to make sure everyone has the opportunity to build their future in the U.S. or Canada. It might sound like a cliche, but if you’re an international or DACA student and are thinking about studying abroad but can’t afford the expenses, we’re here for you. 



The factors that we take into consideration for loans are different from other lenders, and that’s definitely the reason why MPOWER stands out among all U.S. lenders. We believe in the future of our borrowers, which is why we don’t require co-signers, collateral, or credit history. We do everything we can to help international students achieve something great, and no one else is doing it like we are! 

There are lots of limitations for international and DACA students to find suitable loan products. For instance, some products and services are only eligible for U.S. citizens or permanent residents. But MPOWER’s loan options are designed specifically for international students, and lots of people are noticing – we were also awarded by NerdWallet in 2019.

MPOWER hopes every student has a chance to fulfill his or her dream in the U.S. and Canada. If you like MPOWER’s spirit, share it with your friends!
