Adding to a Sims' student loan debt

I've created a mod that allows Sims to take out bank loans, but I'm lacking a way to make them pay them off.
So I thought I'd use Discover University's student loan system, since the mechanics for paying off the loan never actually call them *student* loans. It's always just "loans", as seen here:


I've tried various different loot actions to add to my Sims' debt, but it never seems to actually recognize it, and the option to pay off the debt at a mailbox never appears. I've poked around in the xml and I've found "loot_Statistic_Loans_Set10000," a debug loot action, which should be pretty straightforward, being a debug cheat, but it doesn't appear to do anything. Here's my version:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<I c="LootActions" i="action" m="interactions.utils.loot" n="abutt_Statistic_Loans_Set1100" s="12738263602864831381">
<L n="loot_actions">
<V t="statistics">
<V n="statistics" t="statistic_change">
<U n="statistic_change">
<T n="amount">1100</T>
<T n="stat">223186<!--Statistic: statistic_Debt--></T>
<L n="subject">

I've set the debt statistic to the amount I want, so what do I need to do to get the game to acknowledge the debt?

    @SimGuruModSquad please help, I don't understand how student debts are activated; I add to statistic_debt (which should be the statistic that well, handles, um, debt, and it doesn't do anything)
