Friend wants to borrow money

With rising costs and increased learning needs, financing our children's education is no longer a simple walk in the park. Discuss with other parents about how they are managing their finances to cope with their expenses.

When I let a friend borrow money, I see to it he/she can repay but if I know they can't repay me, I'll let them borrow just a small amount so it doesn't hurt that much

if a friend wants to borrow money, I prepare for that person not to return.
agree...just a small amount so that it won't hurt if he/she really doesn't return. what i'm afraid is borrow and return first time. then borrow again but bigger amount.

Some people, when you let them borrow the first time, they will borrow all over again. And will never stop unless you say NO the next time. And some will make you the bad one when don't let them borrow money

Hi, ngl2010!

Don't you forget to think about yourself first. You might be a great help to her but how about you? Would she also do the same thing if you were on her situation. Hope that this piece of advice might help you.
