In making the announcement, VOY Chairman Fernando Espuelas said, "VOY was created to champion a philosophy of self-empowerment for Latinos.

Among the services offered at VOY Student Loans are a wide range of products for students and their parents, ranging from loans for primary and secondary education to undergraduate and graduate-level loan products:

VOY (meaning "I Go" in Spanish, was founded with the goal of creating the first diversified media company focused exclusively on the fastest growing Latin demographic in the world: the new Pan Latin Generation. Consisting of upwardly mobile and bilingual 13-49 year old Latinos, the Pan Latin Generation is a fast growing segment of the global youth culture who seek their own voice in a media landscape largely devoid of relevant content. Whether consumed in English or Spanish, online or offline in theatres, in homes or while on the go, VOY has established a unique content creation, discovery and distribution platform that is rapidly becoming a place to find, share and consume the best of Latin entertainment and culture. VOY has offices in New York, Los Angeles and Buenos Aires.

Founded in 1996, School Loan Corporation has developed a portfolio of loan programs that not only provide federal and private student loans, but also guide borrowers through the often-confusing student loan process. The company specializes in education loan products that include servicing both federal student loans and private student loans, as well as offering students, parents, and graduates expert and personalized support through the application process and over the life of their loans.
