You consult a company that promises to lower your payment to 0 per month and your interest rate to 9% by negotiating with your creditors and rolling the two loans together into one. Who wouldn’t want to pay 0 less per month in payments?
But here’s the downside: It will now take you 58 months to pay off the loan.
And now the total loan amount would jump to ,103.
The Small Business Administration (SBA), reports that 30 percent of new business close in their first three years of business.
Even more striking is that over half of small businesses - 50 percent - fail within their first five years.
Here’s why you should skip debt consolidation and opt instead to follow a plan that helps you actually win with money: The debt consolidation loan interest rate is usually set at the discretion of the lender or creditor and depends on your past payment behavior and credit score.
Even if you qualify for a loan with low interest, there’s no guarantee the rate will stay low.
In almost every case, you’ll have lower payments because the term of your loan is prolonged. You are only restructuring your debt, not eliminating it.
You don’t need debt rearrangement—you need debt reformation.The solution requires you to roll up your sleeves, make a plan for your money, and take action!
