Ershad Hossain Saju and his wife gave loans to maize farmers in their local community, enabling them to afford agricultural inputs such as fertilizer, and so achieve higher crop yields. Maize is a relatively new crop in Bangladesh, and farming families in the state of Patgram have been able to substantially boost production from around 5.5. tons per hectare to as much as 9.5 tons by participating in CIMMYT’s whole family training (WFT) program to learn to grow the crop. CIMMYT partnered with a local milling company—Doyel Agro Industrial Complex Ltd. —to deliver WFT. Saju is the local representative for Doyel, and by also acting as personal guarantors he and his wife allowed farmers to buy inputs at a reasonable interest rate. “I feel I made a difference in the livelihoods of poor farmers, and this is what Allah my creator told me to do,” he says.

Question by Dat_1_Chiq: What Loan company will take over my federal student loans when the loans are in forbearance?
What Loan company will take over my federal student loans when the loans are in forbearance so I can go back to school?
My loans are government loans from Saillie Mae. I owe them under $ 5000.
I heard about this company that will take over your school loans from them but I don’t know the name of the company.

No one will “take over” your loans. You will still owe the money to your lender when you are in forbearance. They will simply add interest every month while you are making payments.

If you are asking about defaulting the lender will just contract out with a collection agency to start calling and hounding you to mail them payments. If you make 6 to 12 months worth of willing and reasonable payments you can ask your lender to “rehabilitate” your loan. This is when you are issued a new loan and pay off the one in default so you can get federal fin aid again. Again, rehabilitation can only be done after you have made 6 to 12 months of payments.
