Borrowize eliminates the stress and confusion that comes with finding the right loan - Quickly find, compare, and apply for top quality loans in minutes...


“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest” – Benjamin Franklin

Borrowize is a consumer finance platform dedicated to helping people save money by making educated borrowing decisions.   We are a husband and wife team, Federico and Brianna Douzoglou, who used our years of experience in finance and law to create a more common-sense approach to borrowing, after spending countless hours researching lenders and working through our own repayment schedule and options. 

We understand that finding the right loan can be a stressful process, oftentimes leaving you with more questions than answers. How do I make sure the lender is reputable? How much should I ask for? How do I know there isn’t a better deal out there? Will I be able to pay this back? Etc.

Borrowize connects borrowers to a vetted network of trustworthy, innovative, and non-predatory personal and student lending partners to help users borrow wisely. At your fingertips is our loan comparison feature, suite of free personal and student loan calculators, our proprietary “WizeScore” lender rating system, educational guides, as well as our expert tips and reviews.

“When I graduated law school, I realized that I was not prepared to tackle the complexity of understanding and managing my student debt, and that a majority of my friends felt the same way,” says Brianna Douzoglou, who refinanced her own student debt through the website, saving her almost $15,000 in interest.

“Millions of Americans rely on personal loans each year to cover unforeseen expenses, or on student loans to pursue a higher education,” says Federico Douzoglou.  “Unfortunately, too many of those borrowers end up with harmful, predatory, high-cost loans, often because they simply don’t know their options or because the recent recession’s lingering impact has made it increasingly difficult for regular, hard-working, middle-class American consumers to qualify for traditional bank loans.”  Borrowize aims to be the go-to resource for trustworthy loan alternatives and hopes that by also offering practical financial education and resources, borrowers will be able to make smarter borrowing decisions, with peace of mind.
