Revenue share loan investing explained
How it works: Investors loan funds and share in a percentage of cash received from every sale made by the business until they earn a maximum return.
Use this simplified calculator to become more familiar with the mechanics of a revenue share loan and how it compares to a more traditional debt instrument.
Student debt in the United States has reached bubble proportions and currently, there is no simple solution. Two thirds of those who graduate college, carry on average, $26,000 in student loan debt. Even worse, across all colleges, 14.7 percent of borrowers default within three years of entering repayment.
Consolidating student loans to simplify finances and reduce student loan payment amounts, is available to all, but, can be as difficult to do as filing your taxes with the IRS...without the assistance of turbotax or a tax preparer (i.e. it's complex and time consuming and often leads to frustration rather than consolidation). FastTrack Student Loan's solution: be the H&R Block for student loan consolidation.
The management team at FastTrack Student loans has built a sophisticated processing center that understands the ins and outs of the student loan consolidation process. Customers use FastTrack Student Loans to prepare and submit their student loan consolidation paperwork to the Department of Education or private lenders on their behalf. Since starting in July 2013, they have handled over 875+ student loan consolidations.
With a standardized process and a scalable back office now built, FastTrack is looking to ramp up its hiring and marketing efforts to further grow its operations.

The Atlantic - Student Loan System is Broken
Take away - The problem is massive and alarmingly more prevalent among the less sophisticated.
The Federal Government has failed to reach and help a vast number of the borrowers. There are solutions in place but the system is overly complicated and difficult to navigate.
Our mission is to reach as many of these folks as our capacity permits.
There is no reason to default on a Federal student loan.

Updated data on why Student Loans are a huge problem in the U.S.
November 17, 2013
· Economists say college is an increasingly good investment because of the widening pay gap between jobs that require a degree and those that don't.
o Our Thoughts: The market for student loan consolidation will continue to grow as people go to college to acquire higher paying jobs. More people going to college= more people taking out student loans.
· The interest costs on older loans are climbing as borrowers fall behind on payments, reflecting mounting financial strains.
o Our Thoughts: We believe that people don’t want to fall behind on payments. Student loan consolidation gives borrowers a much lower monthly student loan payment (sometimes as much as 50%-70% lower). As more people fall behind, more will want to consolidate their student loans so that they can lower their monthly payments.
· As many as one in four student borrowers who have begun repaying their education debts are behind on payments.
o Our Thoughts: with tens of millions of people having student loans, the market for student loan consolidation is extremely large.
