Find Your Personal Loan: $500 – $2,000

How to choose a personal loan

When you take out an unsecured personal loan, you’re borrowing money without having to secure the loan with collateral, instead focusing on your debt-to-income ratio and your demonstrated ability to repay the loan over time. 

After applying for your personal loan, you would receive (if approved) the lump sum of the loan, less any fees, and you can use the funds as you wish. 

Regardless of how you choose to spend your funds, you will repay the loan in monthly payments until you’ve fulfilled the obligations of the loan.

What goes into a personal loan APR?

The APR (annual percentage rate) on a loan is the interest rate charged on the loan. The APR is calculated over the term of a personal loan and can be considered the “cost of borrowing.” 

The APR on a personal loan will vary depending on several factors including your ability to repay a loan, the length of a loan, and the risk the lender is taking.

The lower an APR, the less expensive a loan is for the borrower.  Even those with a bad credit history can be approved.

What are the requirements for a personal loan?

To take out a personal loan, you’ll be required to have two things.

  1. You must be able to demonstrate your ability to repay the loan. This is often evidence of a steady job with a regular paycheck.
  1. You must have a bank account that the lender can access for direct depositing your loan proceeds if you are approved for the loan. 

If you have been approved for a personal loan, you are required to repay the loan through the scheduled installment payments as per the loan agreement. 

Any issues with repayment or similar should be discussed with the lender. Each lender has to explicitly describe the loan on the loan agreement, therefore we advise that before accepting any loan, you carefully read the loan agreement , especially the parts that contain detailed information about APR and repayment terms.

Before you sign any loan agreement, the lender must provide you with full disclosure of the terms of the loan agreement so you can make the decision that is right for you.
