Having financial problems is not something you should be ashamed of because this is an international problem and you are not on your own. Around ninety percent of people struggle like this on a daily basis. So widespread has the problem become that is now considered routine by many.
It is often the case when you are in full time education that you forget that the student loan and other debts you’ve accumulated will have to be paid off, this normally dawns just after graduation. If that isn’t bad enough, before you know it you are married with two children and a mortgage. You probably haven’t even finished paying of you student loans yet and suddenly there are monthly household bills and a mortgage or rent to take into account.
Well, how did it all happen so fast? Life can be quite predictable and unless you were very good and didn’t have any credit cards, and parents who were generous enough to pay for your schooling, then this is likely what’s happened to you. It’s the interest rate that’s the killer so if you want to deal with the debt then it’s time to tackle the loan application.
Yes, it may seem like a strange thing to suggest if you are already deep in debt. It’s quite simple really as the key is in the interest rate as I hinted at before. It is almost invariably a high interest rate that is causing the problem and yours may even be as high as 17%. Do you really want to keep wasting your precious financial resources like this? How much do you owe? How much do they equal all together and what is the current interest rate on each? Perhaps after you have done this it may be possible for you to apply for a loan that incorporates all your outstanding debts into one. Consider what it would mean to you if your interest rate dropped to say 4%? Just think how much better you would feel only making one repayment per month and at a lower rate of interest.
Why not spend some time on the internet researching what’s available; it should make a pleasant surprise. It is easy to apply online and before you know, those high interest rate monthly repayments will have been replaced by one low repayment. There’s no commitment in looking so what have you to lose.
