Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We usually associate this Irish holiday with rowdy parades, every shade of green, unwanted pinches, and beer. So, what does an enthusiastically celebrated holiday have to do with the student loan marketplace?
Up until a few years ago, the beer landscape in America was dominated by the large “macro brewers” – Anheuser-Busch, Coors, and Miller. Selection and taste have been described as “limited” at best. The attention is shifting off the macro brewers and onto a recent trend that has captured the palates of both novice and sophisticated beer drinkers alike – craft breweries. This interactive map from The New Yorker shows exactly how fast this phenomenon is growing. Microbreweries display artisan-like skill when it comes to infusing unique ingredients (pumpkin peach ale anyone?) within the composition of their beers. Craft breweries have provided a delicious makeover to the beer landscape that had become flat.
Similar to where the beer marketplace was a few years ago, the student loan refinancing landscape today is dominated by large conglomerates and outdated lending products. We’d like to think of Purefy as a “craft lender” within this stale market space dedicated to finding the best solution for our borrowers. Purefy’s vision is to lead the next trend of “craft lending” by designing a tailored solution to fit your individual needs. We’re not a “one-size-fits-all” refinancing warehouse, but rather, an online lender that delivers the best products designed to lower, shorten, and simplify your student loan debt. How you use your savings is up to you, but we know a few good breweries to visit.
