You got the degrees. Now your student loans are holding you back.

I know the feeling of having large amounts of student loan debt to pay off, with no idea where to start. Getting a handle on your student loans can be daunting.

In the U.S., navigating private and federal loans, while trying to choose a repayment plan that works best for you can be confusing.

If you have a Caribbean student loan, that’s another story.

With Caribbean student loans, you have terms and conditions that you may not understand, inadequate communication from loan servicers, and limited options for consolidation and refinancing. All you’ve heard is, “Go to school!” So you got the degrees, the high family praise, and now you have the student loan debt to match.

Here’s what you should do next:

  • Learn how your Caribbean or U.S. student loans work.
  • Implement strategies to pay off your student loan debt.
  • Seek in-depth guidance on managing your student loans.
  • Learn money tips to reach your other personal finance goals.

I created Your Money Worth to fill the gap in personal finance information and resources for Caribbean Millennial graduates.

You ready?
