Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan offers flexible terms to meet the needs of BagoSphere's students. After students complete training, they are afforded up to a 6-month grace period to secure employment. Students who are able to find call center jobs then repay their loans over the course of 8 months. However, if a student must find alternative employment, BagoSphere will extend the loan term for up to 18 months. The vast majority of students do find call center employment, so this loan has been posted with the shorter 8-month schedule; if the loan term is later extended, BagoSphere will notify lenders by posting a journal. By funding this loan you are providing students with the opportunity to receive training, and giving them the flexibility to start employment before beginning loan repayment.
