  • WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PRIVATE LENDER AND A BANK?

    Generally, private lenders offer second-resort loans. They are more flexible and have broader eligibility conditions than conventional banks. However, the interest rates are much higher than those of the banks, so it is better to go to a conventional bank first, and only turn to a private lender in case of refusal.

  • HOW DOES THE APPROVAL PROCESS FOR A PERSONAL LOAN WORK?

    The approval process involves several factors. The lender will check your credit rating, your job stability, and your debt ratio by comparing your debt ratio to your income. They will also look at what assets you have, minus any loans you have on those assets. Lastly, they’ll consider your professional status, that is, your job.

  • IS SECURITY OR COLLATERAL REQUIRED TO GET A PERSONAL LOAN?

    Generally, lenders do not ask for collateral for loans of $15,000 or less. For loans above $15,000, you’ll need to provide an asset as collateral. For example, if you apply for a loan to purchase a car, the lender will use that car as security for payment.

  • WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PAYDAY LOAN AND A PERSONAL LOAN?

    A payday loan is an advance on your pay of up to $1500 that you must repay on your next payday. Interest rates can be as high as 35%. If you are unable to repay, you will have to pay additional fees and interest. It is strongly advised not to take out a payday loan. A personal loan allows you to borrow much larger amounts of up to $50,000. In addition, you can repay over a period of 24 to 120 months at a potentially lower rate.
