Recalculation of Student Loans For Persons Who Aren't Able Pay The Amount Stipulated.

The unfortunate scenario after earning a tertiary education with the help of the Student loan Bureau is that you leave school with an immediate debt looming over your head. I was lucky and privilege to be a recipient of such help and upon receiving this privilege I swore both on paper and to myself that I'd pay my part to keep this wonderful scheme going. The sad reality is after finishing your degree the harsh reality of lack of jobs, exploitation and surviving kicks in, this is further compounded by the calls or emails you receive reminding you about your outstanding debt.  For most of us the call for an interview does not happen until maybe a year after qualifying for the call, during which your loan amount is increasing out of your immediate reach. I was raised to be an honest and grateful man so with such an upbringing I am compelled to repay this money borrowed, however in paying this loan all I ask is to be able to live and take care of my family also. What is being ask of me by the bureau at the moment is impossible, literally. I have written, called and visited them in an effort to make good on our agreement, all which have been futile. I am willing to repay my loan, all I'm asking for, is a reasonable chance to do so. Thank you.
