He will be amazed later in life that he wanted to commit suicide just because of N1.6m.

He is being selfish and shortsighted.

What kind of business did he do?.
What kind of circumstances did he unforsee on top 1.5M?. If he has proof he wasn't reckless with the money, maybe has goods or receipts for expenditure to prove the circumstances,he can take dem to his lender and appeal for more time.

The debt per say doesn't worth committing suicide. Though, the amount must have been so huge compared to his assets, as a matter of fact, there are many people are in the same shoe with him or even much more than his.

Nevertheless, he should also remember that if the money is borrowed from micro finance or any other bank, they(bank) already has insurance cover in case of deatg, so, if he commits suicide, they'll recover their money. The question now is, who looses? I believe he can affirmatively answer the question.

In this difficult time, he should put himself together and ask God for divine revelation and direction on how or what he would do to sort out the mess. He shouldn't also engulf himself with what people we say and shame should be emotionally dealt with.

Finally, tough time doesn't last forever but tough people do. At the end of the turned, there's definitely going to be light!

Then sincerity is the key. He should man up if actually he didn't misappropriate the money, by going to have sincere dialogue with them. If his move is not accepted, then, the can do what they want to do. The law didn't say a debtor should be killed by the lender. Once again, suicide shouldn't be an option

tell your friend to 1st focus on his life blessings, and that NO DEBT is the end... the worse that can happen is that he looses everything, and then he has to start it all over again... no biggie! the fact that he can get back up and start over is what he should focus on, not the BS he can do nothing about.

also, remind him of all the people who will be hurt if he commits suicide AND who he will just transfer his problem and sorrows upon... thats hell of selfish!

debtors cant/wont kill him, all is good, they will have to understand, one way or the other.

Hello,
The reality is that your friend wasn't prepared for business. I was indebted to the tune of 8,000,000 Naira when I lost everything in my business. What mattered to me was what lead to the loss of the money.

When I was convinced that all I was doing was to make money in a business but it didn't work, I relaxed and hope to come back fully sometime. The book titled the act of coming back by Donald trump kept me moving.

Let him know that at some point in life, the present president of America was indebted in billions of dollars, not Naira. And today he is the number one citizen of the world.

So, let him fasten his belt well to come back. Obviously he has learnt a lesson of 1.6m. So, he is 1.6m rich in business experience now. let him keep pushing

Yes some banks insure their loans but it's the capital without interest though in case of unforeseen eventualities

That's true bro. Every Tom and Dick thinks business is for everyone but that's not true. If you're are strong mentally, you can't do business because unforeseeable circumstances do come when you least expect. Only abnormal people thrives in business, not for normal people.

Committing suicide is automatic ticket to hell fire
He should give his life to Christ,this is not negotiable

Go to God in prayer for direction,I am in such debt #1.7mill since 2016 and yet to pay. God gave me a business idea in this lockdown and I believe with the business ,I will be able to pay the debt before the end of this year. I have learnt my lesson and if I rise, I don't think I will ever fall again

Many business people had more debt than that but today the are debt free.
Suicidal thought is for weakling that can't face the challenges of life.

Very funny, we wey don loose more than 10m the quite. He should just continue his business is not the end of life. He should keep failing until he succeed. The traditional school teaches us not to fail but street school teaches us to fail & learn. He needs to have street heart if he really want to roll with the streets.

I have been posting here close to six months, nobody look my face not even a call from anyone here. Yet people send and receive goods everyday. I have been on twitter and facebook using all my digital marketing skills yet no client. Entrepreneurship is hard ,mind you there are debts needed to be paid soonest. Am I thinking of suicide? No! Suicide is NEVER an option but the fact is that these things are hard.
