We believe that the future of Africa will be defined by its leaders and their ability to unleash the incredible potential of the continent.
We believe great education & development is an important part of developing leaders and the biggest barrier to tertiary education in Africa remains access to educational finance.
At African Leadership Finance Company (ALFC), our mission is to provide leaders with affordable & innovative financing for high-quality education.
ALFC has been set up to provide an innovative solution to this problem by introducing Income Sharing Agreements (ISAs) that invest in the future potential of a person’s ability to generate an income.
Under the ISA funding model, ALFC funds students to attend university or receive professional training; in return, the students agree to pay ALFC a fixed percentage of their income for a specific period of time.
ALFC presents a tremendous opportunity for these students, and potentially millions of others denied access to education due to the absence of financing alternatives.
Beyond funding education at ALG’s programs, ALFC has the potential to expand further into funding a broader talent membership, offer the service to other tertiary education providers, create a loyalty program and partnerships with other institutions.
Through offering and serving ISAs, ALFC will enable the youth of Africa to unlock their futures based solely on their potential and not their financial circumstances.
