If you do not meet the repayments/payments on your loan/financing, your account will go into arrears. This may affect your credit rating, which may limit your ability to access financing in the future.

Refinancing your loans/financing may take longer to pay off than your previous loan/financing and may result in paying more in interest/profit.
