Some people consider all loans to be bad, whereas some consider them to be good. I think loans can definitely be good as long as you have a financial plan in regards to managing your loan and paying it off.
Below are a few ways describing how a loan can help you out in life:
A loan can help you go to school.
Student loans are what helped me go to school. Without it, it would have been a little bit harder for me to go to college. Yes, there are ways to attend college more cheaply, but student loans helped me. It would have been much more stressful to go to college without student loans, and it probably would have taken me much, MUCH more time to go to school and earn my degrees. Student loans allowed me to graduate quickly and get a job sooner.
Before you resort to student loans in order to get through college, you should have a plan to pay off the student loans, try to get the lowest interest rate on your student loans, and only take out exactly what you need for student loans. Don’t try to fund your lifestyle with your student loans. It is very easy to take out much more in student loans than you actually need, and that is not a good idea.
A loan can help you get a home.
Many people would not be able to afford a home without a mortgage. It would be very difficult for many to pay for a house completely in cash, and that makes sense because homes are very expensive. Considering many homes around the world may have a median home price of half a million dollars, it would be hard to buy a home in those areas. Even cities with a median home price of $150,000 would be hard to pay in cash because who exactly has $150,000 to fork over in one quick swoop? Not many people do!
Because of home loans, being able to buy a house is much more realistic and manageable. You can buy a beautiful home that fits in your budget all because of a home loan.

A loan can help you get a car.
This last one may be debatable, but a home loan can help you get a car. Without a car, you may not be able to go to work, you may not be able to go to school, you may not be able to run errands and more. You don’t have to get a car that is extremely expensive, just get something that fits you and your family.
This one is more of a revolving cycle. Without a loan for your car, then you can’t make money. But you need to make money in order to get a car loan. I enjoy cars though so it does not bother me.
