One of the most important things to take cognizance of while planning your relocation abroad is the monetary aspect of it. Most of the time, when we get on calls with clients, the first concern they express is being unable to fund their relocation dreams without getting stranded.
Whilst this is the wise thing to do because anyone who desires to build a house needs first sit and count the cost of the building.
Most of the time, you need to take a leap and do things that you wouldn’t normally do and you’ll be surprised that things will fall in place once you take that corresponding step toward the realization of your goals.
Just as Suzy Kassem said, Sometimes, changing a situation you are in requires you to take a giant leap. But, you won’t be able to fly unless you are willing to transform.”
In this blog, we have highlighted ways in which you can fund your relocation dreams without being stranded while at it.
1. Friends and family
Just like Micheal Fox rightly posited, Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.” this shows that most of the time when we are in a fix, we can always reach out to our family for help and assistance. There have been instances where family properties had to be sold in other to fund the relocation dreams of a family member. You just got an admission and you’re totally oblivious as to what to do with it, this might be a great time to reach out to your family and friends for support.
The support can come in varying forms. Don’t die in silence, seek help.
2. Bank loans
You can also fund your dreams by taking loans from commercial institutions, there are commercial institutions in Nigeria that make loans available to graduate students.
We have put together some of the banks and all you need is to do your due diligence while considering this pathway. Some of the banks include;
