Loans​


“Anytime you use someone else’s money to purchase something, you are borrowing, and it must be repaid.”  Accepting a loan means "I'm willing to pay more than what something is worth at face value."  The most common types of loans students and graduates will borrow are student loans, car loans, and home loans."

Brad Burnett, “9 Things”
