Sometimes we face curveballs on the road to achieving our dreams – little hiccups that either delay us or may even halt our dreams permanently. Many times these curveballs are things that can be fixed with a little help – whether physically, financially or emotionally.

The video below depicts a similar story. Duncan Johnson is a promising saxophone player who recently got an audition to a prestigious music school but just before his audition his saxophone was stolen. Taking away his dream opportunity and his livelihood, and he was distraught. Duncan had two options – to give up on his dream or apply for a loan, which would help him to buy a new saxophone in time for his audition.

Duncan chose the second option and applied for a personal loan from Old Mutual Finance and he bought a new saxophone and played his heart out at his audition. In turn, he was accepted into his dream music school.

Watch his story here:

A personal loan can help you to cover the cost of an unexpected emergency similar to what Duncan had to deal with in the video above. Taking out a personal loan is a good option if you don’t have the immediate lump sum that you need on hand. With financial institutions like Old Mutual Finance, you can pay off the loan amount and choose a loan repayment term that will be affordable to you.

As a responsible and reputable lender, they promote and encourage you to pay off your loan over a shorter period of time, to help you to get out of debt sooner.
