Getting A Personal Loan?

When you need one or more loans for big purchases coming up in your life, you might not know what to do. If you haven’t ever had to apply for a loan or fill out all of the paperwork, then you might not know what to expect. There are a lot of different options when it comes to loans, what the terms are, who even loans out money and what you can qualify for are all a mystery until you get a little bit of a loan education. Never fear though, applying for the loan might seem like a hassle, but it is worth it in the long run when you get what you have been waiting for.

Finding Lenders

Lenders are the people who will actually get you the loan. The lenders could be a local bank, a credit union, a mortgage company or some other type of financing, such as through the car dealership or the store where you are making a big purchase and need a line of credit. When you have good credit, it is fairly easy to get a loan. When you have bad credit, it can be a lot more difficult to get people to lend you money. It is still possible, but your terms and your options with creditors will be a bit more limited.

Depending on where you are going and what you are getting, you might not have the option of looking for lenders on your own. One example would be if you are getting a line of credit through a furniture store. They will offer you usually one option through their store with one set of terms. If you don’t like their loans, you can always try and get a personal loan from your bank and use that money to get the furniture you want.


The terms are the conditions spelled out by the lender. They include how long you have to repay the loan, what interest rate you will pay and what any penalties are for late fees. The terms might also include if you have a variable interest rate or if you have one locked in for the length of the loan.

If you don’t like the terms that one bank offers, you can always try and find different terms with another bank or credit union. The process will take time, because you will have to make a lot of phone calls and give out a lot of information in order to get a little bit of it back. When you want a special loan or one with a long repayment term, you might have a harder time finding it.


Depending on what type of loan you are applying for, there will be limits on how much you can get. Loans are based on income, debt to income ration and what your credit history is. All of the factors are used in varying degrees to come up with an amount that the bank or credit union will loan to you this time.
