Personal loans can be used for almost anything! Some of the most popular uses include:
One of the most common misconceptions about personal loans is that getting a loan will harm your credit score.
Simply put, this is NOT true! Personal loans will actually improve your credit score (even if it’s in the good/excellent range) with on-time payments. In fact, this is one of the many benefits of a personal loan.
When finalizing your personal loan, you will typically be presented with multiple offers from different lenders and banks. Make sure you pick the offer that works best for your financial situation.
A representative loan example: if you receive a $10,000 loan with a 36-month term and a 17.98% APR (which includes a 14.32% yearly interest rate and a 5% one-time origination fee), you would receive $9,500 in your account and would have a required monthly payment of $343.33. Over the life of the loan, your payments would total $12,359.97.
Longer term loans tend to have slightly higher interest rates. Whereas, loans over shorter periods of time, like just 1 year, tend to have the lowest interest rates, but will typically see higher monthly payments.
