(2) Analyze your financial situation and the amount you need and whether you can do the repayment on time or not.
(3) Don’t choose a repayment period longer than necessary, the later you repay it the more interest you will pay.
(4) Do a comparison to find a lender that offers the best interest.
(5) Don’t apply for a loan for impulse purchases.
(6) Don’t apply for a loan to pay off another loan. Otherwise you will end up in a whirlpool and would be very difficult to get out.
(7) Do not apply for loans for leisure activities such as evening outings or special occasions or to play casinos, slots or poker.
(8) Do not apply for more than one loan at a time
(9) Most importantly, read the loan contract of the lender. Many borrowers do not read the conditions, and of course later realize that they have extra money to pay.
(10) Always check the payment terms and conditions in case of non-payment or delay.
