SoFi Targeting Medical Residents

In October SoFi launched an offering targeted at medical school graduates; American Banker shares how the move is just the latest example of how lenders use data to tap into new borrower niches; the average debt load of medical school graduates is $190,000 and during residency salaries are around $60,000; since their income is low traditional lenders often won’t refinance these loans; with the new product residents can consolidate their debt and make a $100 monthly payment until they finish training.
