Is It Good To Borrow Money To Start A Business

By - - [ Opinion ]

Am currently a serving corp member, however, am not so much needed in my PPA ( Primary Place of Assignment) and i have a business plan that in mind of which i am very sure am going to make huge money from it but i don't have the capital to start

Have finally come to the conclusion with myself that am going to save up money during this my service year and start the business have am done serving. 

However, because i have many friends that are able to borrow me this money and even many other areas that i know i can get this money from, my girlfriend was now advising to borrow and start the business but the fear of the unknown is holding back from borrowing.

What do you think i should do?

Borrowing money to start a business is not bad but it all depends on the urgency of the business and the type of business. if you don't want it very urgent, I advise that saving up money for the business is the best. before you borrow, make sure that the business you are going into is a very lucrative one otherwise you may not be able to payback that which you have borrowed.

Borrowing to start a business is not a bad idea depending on who you intend borrowing from. Some will give you a certain time to pay back, and if you don't meet up, it'll be a problem. I'll suggest you save up a little and borrow the remaining from a family member or a friend who understands what entrepreneurship is all about and wouldn't be in a hurry to be paid back incase you don't meet up with the specified payback time. Best of luck. In all, pray for God's guidance.

I will not advice anyone to do so but I can advice someone that already has a business to borrow money and boost it up. This is because most times what we have on our head and calculated on our mind doesn't seems to be that way in reqlity. For instance what if you borrowed the money and you get stock in the business without even getting any profit ,will you go and borrow another money to pay for the first money you borrowed. 

People forget to check both the giis and bad sides of things before finalizing a n their decision. Ifyou use your own money to start a business if for some long period you couldn't make profit or get the capital money back ,You will be indebted to yourself nobody else.

Many, if not all, successful business owners borrowed money to start their businesses. You should count yourself lucky that you even have people to lend you money, and you also have the time to invest as you said you're not busy at your PPA. Therefore, you have no excuse not to start now, it's only fear of failure and procrastination that are holding you back. Just be sure it's a venture you have passion for so you can persevere in it when the going gets tough as it undoubtedly will at some point. I wish you all the best.

First of all, you don't burrow money to start a business because you feel it will bring you profits later. Unless you've calculated the loss and gain, do your check and balance and you see its worth it, then you're good to go. 

Another thing is, never burrow money (loan) from the bank to start a business, I'm talking from experience. If you must burrow, do it with your family members, not even your friends. 

I like your spirit, keep it up. Instead of waiting for white collar job, start something, no matter how small.

It’s not bad to borrow money in setting up a business, but it all depends on the business you hope to go into. The major thing in borrowing is the ability to pay back loan, before borrowing you should know so well about the business and how it will be able to generate enough funds for you to pay back.
