How to get the loan back from a friend
Back in 2016, my BFF borrowed $4K from me to repay a loan to his BIL.
Fast forward today, my BFF has yet to return this sum of money to me.
My BFF career has taken off since 2020 and doing even better since late last year to a position of HOD and changed to a new car 6 months ago.
Our relationship is still good & I thought of putting it nicely to my friend for her to repay the loan i gave her.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not jealous of her success, but I thought since she is earning many times more than me, I could have good use for that sum of money.
I always refrain from lending anyone money because I’m very poor in getting the person to pay me back. The reason I gave her the loan back then was because she was struggling financially because of her house, reno & baby who came along.
The question is , how do I bring up the subject to her to repay me without jeopardising our friendship ? I’m not confident if she still remembers this or the amount of money I lent her?
Here are what netizens think:
- Tell her you need to borrow 5k from her. When she asks you back for the money, tell her to offset from the amount she borrowed from you last time, with interest.
- If your BFF is is really a BFF, then she should not be offended when you bring this up. Since she is doing well, it is her responsibility to honour her commitment and the trust you have given her.
- Once you lend anyone money, consider it gone! Don’t talk about friends, even lending to own blood also cannot get back!
