Personal finance as a term wasn’t brought up or even talked about amongst friends while I attended college 2 years ago. In fact, I only remember it vaguely discussed by professors. Many people in college have the responsibility to create their own income, to remain in college. Study full time, work part time, social life-no time. That time spent earning their way, whether it was for school or to have money to go out with friends, it was a meaningless burden to me. People like this understood personal finance better than I did after 4 ½ years majoring in Accounting and Finance.

If you’ve recently been denied a bank loan and are struggling to make ends meet, you might be interested in other methods of borrowing to get the cash you desperately need. Some people are lucky enough to have wealthy family members or friends that can provide them with a cash advance with no interest required. However, needless to say, that option isn’t available to many people, and that means you might need to explore other options. Of course, you might be worried that you’ll have to risk your home in order to secure a loan, but that’s not the case if you apply for a guarantor loan.
