Providing motivated students burdened by debt an entrepreneurial opportunity to prosper Debt-Free!
Student loans are the second-largest source of outstanding consumer debt, after home loans, and they can be incredibly difficult to refinance and nearly impossible to discharge in bankruptcy (Link 1). Students across the country are trapped by their debts and often unable to take advantage of the freedom that a college degree should afford (Link 2). According to a 2011 study by the Harvard Graduate School of Education, only 56 percent of students who enter four-year programs graduate within six years. Of those students who did graduate in 2012, 71% took out loans and left school with a record average of $29,400 student debt. The Project on Student Debt/TICAS published a report stating that the class of 2012′s increased debt load came with a side of high joblessness, with a 7.7% unemployment rate for young college graduates in 2012 and an under-employment rate of 18.3% (Link 3).
