Timeline
Boro got started way back in 2015, helping international students studying in the U.S. get access to smart and low-rate auto loans so they could get cars on campus.
We were a hit with international students. In 2016, we launched the beta version of BoroCash and expanded to serve all college students in the U.S.
The Boro app launched in July 2019 with BoroCash, offering micro loans to college students so they could build their credit history before they graduate college.
We’re building a ton of cool new finance features for the Boro app. Stay tuned to see what we do next!

College students are facing a serious credit crisis. They are getting poor financial education and are wide open to predatory lenders, payday loans and high-interest credit cards, wrecking their credit before they even know what a credit score is. When students can’t build their credit history, they graduate with low credit scores and can’t get the credit they need to achieve their goals.

We’re ending that cycle.

Boro’s products and Boro as a company is committed to helping make financial education a priority for this generation. Students should be ready to manage their finances before they graduate; not years later.
