“We are thrilled that Goldman Sachs is supporting the MPOWER team as we contribute to the important mission of making higher education and socioeconomic mobility accessible to the millions of international and DACA students studying in North America,” said Manu Smadja, CEO and Co-founder of MPOWER Financing. “91% of our students say that an MPOWER loan is instrumental to their ability to study abroad, so this funding will enable us to further democratize access to higher education.”

This financing agreement is in addition to one that MPOWER closed in 2022 with Deutsche Bank AG, New York Branch. A group of investors, including Tilden Park Capital Management and King Street Capital Management, also contributed $100 million in equity to the company in 2021.
