hello Nairalanders, please help me with honest advice/opinions here because i don't know what to do. i finished my youth service last year and i've been searching for a job from then till now. however, my cousin,who's a distributor for a beverage company asked me to come and help him manage his network of customers whenever he travels to another state for business. i do my job faithfully and honestly that even his fellow distributors also pay me to transact some business for them too (my cousin specifically give them the go ahead before they even approach me). Now, one of his partners who's quite elderly and particularly fond of me asked if i wanted to be a partner. i said 'yes of course' excitedly and he said he'd help me. later, he now said he would give me a loan to start my business, but i will deal on only his products and no one else's. considering my knowledge of this business, this is literally a trap because it would take months to pay back under this conditions. he said my cousin is fine with the arrangements. my cousin just said 'it's up to you'. i think he doesn't want to be held responsible if i don't pay back the loan on time. Should i take the loan or just let it slide, i love my peace of mind please.
