Lumni


Mission: To help students succeed in academic and professional fields.


Where they work: Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru & the US


Our partnership: We have supported Lumni since 2013 with an investment into their Peru Fund, match-funded by our sister non-profit Hampshire Foundation.


Lumni designs and manages social investment funds that invest in the tertiary education of students who are predominantly from low-income backgrounds. In exchange, each student commits to pay a fixed percentage of income for a fixed number of months after graduation. Under this design, students face little risk of overly burdensome debt payments, providing relief for debt-adverse populations that are most in need of funding and are otherwise at risk of dropping out of their studies.
