Unsecured loans are a type of loan typically offered to borrowers with credit in good standing. These loans do not require any collateral up front. This is different from a secured loan, which requires some sort of collateral. A mortgage is a common example of a secured loan because the home is used as collateral. Using collateral reduces the amount of risk for the lender, because they are able to claim ownership of the property if the borrower defaults on their loan. This is why unsecured loans are riskier for lenders and are typically offered to borrowers with credit in good standing.

What kind of loan can I get with bad credit?
The lenders working with Personal Money Network offer a variety of lending products. What kind of loan you can get, depends on what kind of loan you qualify for. Some of the options for unsecured loans for bad credit include:
Payday Loans: This is a type of loan that is expected to be repaid on or before you next paycheck. This loan is typically for an amount less than $1,000 and could often be accessible to bad credit borrowers because of a reduced risk involved for the lender.
Installment Loans: This type of loan allows the borrower to repay a loan in payments on a payment schedule that is determined when the loan agreement is signed. The amounts available for installment loans vary. Speak with your lender to see what amounts and terms you qualify for.
Other lending products may be available from your lender. Be sure to speak with them to see if they have lending products that are customized for your particular situation. This is one way of ensuring that you request the product that is going to be a good fit for your circumstance.
What can I use an unsecured loan for?
A better question might be, what do you need an unsecured loan for? Did your car break down? Maybe you need to pay a bill or are considering using it for some debt consolidation. It doesn’t really matter. Many of the lenders working with Personal Money Network do not require that you tell them why you are borrowing the money. You can use it how you see fit. You should still think about why you are borrowing the money before you do it though. If you have bad credit, now might not be the right time to consider requesting an unsecured loan. Bad credit borrowers should take steps to determine whether their decisions will cause further damage to their credit. Some common reasons borrowers consider requesting an unsecured loan include: Making a home or car payment on time to avoid late fees, a home or appliance repair that cannot wait until your next paycheck or paying for an unexpected medical bill.
Installment Loan or Payday Loan, which is better?
That depends on your situation. If you need to borrow more than $1,000 or you need a longer term on the repayment of your loan, you might consider an installment loan because a payday loan is intended to be repaid on or before your next payday. Payday loans are much shorter term than an installment loan. So, this is something to consider when you are requesting a loan. Your lender may have other loan products for you to consider so be sure to contact them directly once you have received an approval if you would like to explore other lending options through them.

Another company says they offer “no credit check loans.” Why shouldn’t I use them instead?
It’s easy to make promises, but not all promises are actually true. No lender will offers a “no credit check loan.” There’s a reason for that. They may offer a minimally invasive credit check that simply verifies your income and compares it with the amount of monthly expenses you have currently, but even doing this is still a type of credit verification. It just means they won’t be running your credit past a major credit reporting bureau. Many of the lenders working with Personal Money Network offer what is called a “soft” credit verification. The part that is dishonest, is advertising this as not being a true credit check. Beware of companies that make this claim, they may make other claims that are dishonest just to get your business.
