Poll: Do you remind people when they owe you money?
Give it to us straight. Be honest.

HAVE YOU EVER loaned money to someone and then been too embarrassed to ask for it back?

A survey carried out by Irish research company Amárach for the Circle payment app found that many Irish people are reluctant to call in a loan when they have given it to a friend or family member.

Would that be how you would react? Or do you remind people when they owe you money?

Poll Results:

No, I hope they will just pay it back (3243)
I might once but after that it gets awkward (2747)
Yes, early and often, no matter the amount (1668)
Yes, but only if it's over €50 (1479)
