I got around $5000 left in my tuition fee loan (4.75% interest). Should I continue to make monthly repayments or pay one lump sum now?

I have enough to pay off but I don't have 6 months salary saved. A friend recommended that I invest in e.g. robo advisor or something similar to grow the money as I make repayments - no rush in paying off in full right now. But I have no motivation to read up on this, need help!

You have 5000 loans left.. There are 2 options..
option 1: is to pay off and free of debt.
Option 2: continue to pay the loan monthly... This is leverage.

What type of person are you? Opt1 or opt 2?
You mentioned you dont have 6 month emergency after you pay the loan with lump sum?
If so, i suggest u be option 2. Repay your loan monthly leveraging your 5000.
You can invest in robo advisor for the start.
I recommend stashaway. Its easy to use.. Friendly interface. Every month put in a sum of money example $100. You go try the app...
You have to be motivated to grow your money. Your lifestyle, your future depend on your action today.
