Maybridge was born in 2008 at the height of a global crisis that nearly ruined the major economies of the world. It was organized by a group of entrepreneurs and bankers who felt that too many sectors of the economy were being kept out of the mainstream financial system because of too many barriers.
The company started as a lender to micro-entrepreneurs and salaried professionals. It subsequently evolved into an enterprise finance institution that catered to small and medium enterprises especially those in healthcare, education, renewable energy, low-cost housing and financial technology. At the same time, it continued to allocate a significant portion of its risk capital to financing wage earners, and overseas workers.
In 2017, Maybridge became an education-centric finance company when it launched an ambitious program to help narrow the financing gaps in the education sector by financing small private schools as well as their suppliers, vendors, students, and business partners. By doing so, Maybridge declared itself strongly for affordable private education.
