Do you do loans for bad credit?

Need a loan with bad credit? We can help you with that. That because, while we do credit checks, your credit rating is not the only thing we look at when assessing your loan application. We prefer to look at your current financial situation to assess whether you’ll be able to manage the repayments.

So even if you know you don’t have the best credit rating, it’s not a dead end. When you need a loan come to us.

What can my loan be used to pay for?

What should I watch out for when borrowing money?

When you need a loan often it’s during the most stressful of circumstances, so it isn’t always possible for us to think things through when it comes to borrowing money. Nevertheless, getting a loan can be a great solution to cover unexpected costs. Here is a list of some of the things you should ask yourself when deciding if you need a loan:

Can you afford the repayments?

This is the most important thing to look out for when deciding if you need a loan. The best way to do this is to use a budget planner to help you work out what your monthly expenses are and to see whether your repayments can comfortably fit within in your budget.

Do you agree with the terms and conditions of the loan contract?

Since borrowing a loan is a legal responsibility for both the lender and the borrower it is important that you agree with the terms and conditions of the loan contract. Make sure you understand all your responsibilities as a borrower and be clear about what all the fees and charges are.

How will this affect my credit score?

A loan can affect your credit score in various ways. It can either have a positive impact on your credit score or it can damage your credit score. If you are consistent with making your payments on time, this can actually raise the value of your credit rating. However, if you are not consistent with making your payments on time it can damage your credit rating and further inhibit your ability to gain access to credit in the future.
