You should pay a larger loan first

While it’s important to prioritise paying off a loan, the loan size isn’t always the most important factor to consider. Instead, it’s often better to focus on paying off loans with the highest interest rates. 

That’s because higher interest rates mean you’ll end up paying more interest charges over time. This can make it harder to pay off your loans in the long run.
