What Are Personal Loans?
A Personal Loan is money you borrow from a bank for a specified period of time with no collateral required. You receive the funds in one lump sum, you have a fixed rate and a fixed term and you benefit from fixed monthly payments.
So, if you’ve got higher interest debt you’d like to consolidate, appliances you would like to upgrade or car repairs on the horizon, you can use a personal loan for almost any financial need or life event.
