Cheryl
Cheryl is a 25-year old high school graduate and lives in a rural village in Bago City. Her father works as a construction helper and farmer, and her mother helps in the canteen at a local school. Cheryl’s partner died 2-years ago due to a disease, and she’s been living with her family since then. Their total monthly family income is only Php 5,000.00($111). Cheryl wants to help her parents but didn't have the means until she learned about the 2-month training program of BagoSphere that could lead to a call center job. Now that she has passed BagoSphere’s selection process, she needs your help to finance her tuition. Once Cheryl starts earning, she can help her parents provide her family’s basic needs and then save money for her 3-year old girl.

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.
