These days, various types of loans are offered by financial institutions and banks. Personal loans are quickly becoming well-known due to its various kinds that are designed to meet the demands of consumers. Secured personal loans need collateral (a security pledged in exchange for payment of the loan) however, it is not required for loans that are unsecured. For secured loans the lender is free to seize the collateral if the borrower is unable to pay the loan amount. Since there is no collateral for an unsecured personal loan and the lending of money in these instances is subject to the risk of being a major one. The lender is not able to lender to take over and recover the loss right away. This is why these risky personal loans are accompanied by an increased rate of interest. This article will give you a an overview of the high risk loans.

Bad credit and personal loans with high risk

Therefore, high risk loans are available to individuals who have nothing to offer as collateral. Most of the time the loans are given to people with a poor credit score. They might not be able to get other kinds of loans because of their poor credit score. Sometimes, they could also find themselves in situations where they require urgent cash. For these people the high-risk personal loans may be the only option to get, so they should know that Greenday will take a risk.

A lot of people are lured by appealing offers and ease of access of loans, but do not strike the right balance between their spending and income. They end up in bankruptcy. The loan records that include details about payment, delays, and defaults, are scrutinized by credit reference agencies who give a credit score to every borrower. Therefore, those who are in debt and those on the close to bankruptcy, are assigned a very poor credit scores. People with a poor credit history might find it difficult to get a loan and the next time they will be in financial need. In these situations high-risk personal loans can be beneficial. From the perspective of lenders lending money to those with poor credit scores is very risky. Thus, the interest rates on these types of loans can be more in comparison to the majority of the other types of loans.

More information about personal loans with high risk

A high-risk personal loan can be described as a type of short-term, unsecured loan. Most of the time, these loans are smaller amounts and have more interest. Because of the increased popularity they are readily accessible. Today, you will have a number of lenders that are willing to give you loans that fall under this category. There are several advantages in choosing this type of loan that offer a variety of options dependent on the borrower’s financial condition. Based on your financial situation and needs, you are able to select the best type of loan. Here are a few of the features that are common to all loans.

  • Lesser loan amount
  • The repayment period is short (1 to 5 years)
  • High interest rates (8 to 20 percent)
  • More flexibility

The loan’s term, interest rate, loan maximum and so on. can differ between lenders. There is also the possibility that some borrowers receive flexibility in their loan amount or the amount of repayment (as an extension of loan terms). Although, the majority of these benefits are not advantageous to the borrower, there are certain benefits of high risk loans for those who have poor credit.


  1. Personal loans with high risk can be a fantastic option to improve your credit score, as long as you pay all the dues promptly, and without default. You are responsible to ensure that your credit rating (and prompt repayment) is closely monitored by the credit agency frequently. Sometimes, you might have to submit an application specifically to the agency that handles credit in order that they can monitor your credit performance over time and, in the end, lead to a better credit score.
  2. The loans are available anytime you’re in dire need of funds. They are the most efficient source of money in moments of need. In the present, you can find many established banks that provide this kind of loan. There are numerous online finance companies that offer high risk loans.
  3. Another advantage is the fact that collateral is not required by lenders for these loans. In reality, nothing of your personal assets are at risk. The borrower is not required to have co-signers to give personal guarantees.
  4. Since they are high-risk types of loans The process of sanctioning is extremely fast and is only 24 to 48 hours to receive the amount of the loan. Sometimes , you could receive the loan amount in just 24 hours.
  5. The process of applying is easy and not complicated. The process doesn’t require the filling out of long forms or filling out applications. Furthermore, the borrower will have the money directly deposited into his account with the bank of his choice.

In addition to the banks there are many firms that can be found through the Internet or in the local paper or phone book to get these loans. Due to their speedy and easy processing, these quick advances are very popular for the masses. They are also referred to as payday personal, personal, and secured loans.


In accordance with the title the fact that high-risk personal loans have a higher risk of risk associated with these transactions, particularly for lenders. Because there isn’t any collateral or co-signer in this transaction, it is a more risky bet for lenders. They are not able to collect through pledged assets. However, if the borrower fails to repay the loan, the process of recovering the loan becomes extremely complicated and costly. But banks are prepared to accept the risk, however they make up for it by increasing the interest rate and charges. Although the interest rates are higher, it’s worth it if you’re in desperate need of cash.

Insofar as borrowers are concerned, high-risk loans are the options to arrange financial affairs. These loans should be reserved for emergencies and not for extravagant expenses such as holidays. It is best to contact your bank of choice since they are familiar with your previous financial records. There is also a chance that you can negotiate a favorable bargain with them. If you’re able to you can approach different financial institutions and banks and look at their deals. Pick the one most suitable for your needs. Choose a lower loan amount as it can be difficult to pay for larger amounts in a short period of time. Most importantly, make sure you repay the loan amount on the due date.

Investment Thesis

OppFi (OPFI) is a mispriced, under the radar, high growth fintech trading like a value stock. Wall Street misperceives OPFI as merely a fully-valued plain vanilla subprime lender, rather than an undervalued fintech innovator. In our view, OPFI differs from other nonprime lenders with its digital platform, automated underwriting powered by artificial intelligence algorithms, lower comparative interest rates, and longer payment terms with amortization, which all enable the company to generate substantially higher origination volume growth. OPFI is distinguished from other fintech players, given its higher profitability margins and strategic plan to broaden its product portfolio for the underbanked everyday consumer. Therefore, we anticipate OPFI will experience substantial valuation multiple expansion over the next 12 months (and beyond). Our $12 price target represents more than 50% upside.

Data by YCharts

Company Overview

OppFi is a financial technology platform that partners with banks to primarily provide subprime, underbanked consumers access to credit. OPFI built a digital, artificial intelligence driven platform based on real-time data analytics and a proprietary scoring algorithm, enabling automated underwriting.

Current products include OppLoans, SalaryTap, and the OppFi Card. OppLoans provide installment loans to consumers who otherwise would not qualify for credit. SalaryTap offers payroll-linked credit at prime pricing to non-prime consumers. The OppFi Card provides OPFI’s best customers with a traditional credit card.

OppFi became a publicly-traded company through a SPAC transaction, completing a business combination with FG New America Acquisition Corporation in July 2021.

Solid Management Team, FinTech Experience

In our view, management team strength and credibility are among the most important factors when considering a stock. To this end, we think the OPFI senior leadership team is well-experienced, innovative, and capable of capitalizing on many strategic growth opportunities.

Jared Kaplan joined as CEO in 2015, and his prior experience includes co-founding Insureon, leading financial technology investing at Accretive, and investment banking at Goldman Sachs. This past summer, Neville Crawley came aboard as president, after serving almost 4 years as CEO of Kiva Microfunds, a global fintech non-profit that facilitates loans to low-income entrepreneurs globally. Shiven Shah has been CFO for the past 4 years and prior to OPFI served in various finance roles at ABN Amro, Peak6, and Citigroup.

The Misperceived Underbanked Market

In our view, investors continue to misunderstand the significant market opportunity for which OppFi competes and in doing so marginalize the company as merely another subprime or payday lender. Instead, OPFI seeks to be a transformational leader for underbanked consumers, helping them rebuild credit and gain financial flexibility.

The reality is a significant portion of U.S. consumers possess minimal savings and/or lack access to credit. According to a study by GoBankingRates, 40% of Americans have less than $400 in savings and 57% less than $1,000. In addition, according to research by LendingClub (LC) and PYMNTS, 54% of U.S. consumers, representing 125 million Americans, live paycheck-to-paycheck with 21% struggling to pay bills. Figures in both of these reports reflect a time when pandemic-induced federal stimulus funds were being distributed and are therefore likely even worse now. During September 2019, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York published an extensive study titled “Unequal Access to Credit: The Hidden Impact of Credit Constraints” and concluded approximately 60 million Americans lack access to “credit of choice,” which means that they are rejected by traditional banks and lenders due to poor credit scores or no credit history.

In 2019, OppFi conducted a proprietary survey of its customers that found 54% experience financial emergencies multiple times per year, 72% were denied a line of credit or bank product, and 51% were denied a personal loan in the past 12 months.

Given these dynamics, our thesis is predicated on investors becoming more comfortable with the subprime lending space. Rather than perceiving OPFI as a loan shark taking advantage of vulnerable borrowers, investors will ultimately be convinced that OPFI actually helps these borrowers rebuild their financial lives by offering access to credit at a fair price.

For example, a mere two weeks after the de-SPAC (i.e. business combination) was completed, The Bear Cave launched a short attack arguing OPFI is a “payday lender” with a 129% average annual interest rate, pays for positive online reviews, and is the target of some state attorney generals. As with most short attacks, this characterization is a false narrative. While the 129% average annual interest rate may be close to the truth, the range is 59% to 160% per the analyst day presentation. More importantly, real payday lenders charge 391% on average according to the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and subprime lenders like OPFI need to charge a fair rate given the risk undertaken, since approximately 30% of its loans are charged-off. Regarding online reviews, TrustPilot has received more than 2,100 customer reviews for OppFi and the average review is a 4.7 on a 5-point scale. TrustPilot ensures its scoring integrity through multiple safeguards as outlined in its recently published transparency report. In addition, while a small number of politically motivated attorney generals in Democrat-controlled states have attacked subprime small dollar lenders, including OppFi, the truth is that OPFI is in favor of “common sense consumer protection guidance” that also “protects credit access for millions of everyday consumers.” This past summer, OppFi released its position statement titled Non-Prime Consumer Loan Market Reform: A Policy Paper. In sum, part of the reason why OPFI generates such stellar customer reviews despite charging the interest rates that it does is because this lender is customer friendly by structuring the loans with amortization, imposing no origination, late, or NSF fees, and when needed collaborating with customers to modify payment terms.

Growth Strategy

Robust Growth For Current Products

We expect OppFi’s robust growth to continue for the foreseeable future, as management elects to strategically tradeoff some profitability margin for higher origination growth. During the five-year period from 2015 through 2020, OPFI’s revenue compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) grew more 100%.

By investing more in marketing and technology, and tweaking its underwriting algorithm, OPFI can further accelerate origination growth. These initiatives would further increase the automated approval percentage (51% in 2Q:21 up from 0% in 4Q:17) and application conversation (total funded loans to applications, which was 24% in 2Q:21 up from 9% in 4Q:17). Based on the analyst day investor presentation, OPFI has significantly shifted its marketing focus to lower cost non-direct mail (i.e. SEO, email marketing, customer referrals, strategic partnerships, etc) and away from direct mail, such that the mix was approximately 84/16 in 2020 compared to 57/43 in 2017.

OppFi’s current product portfolio is a well-rounded ecosystem in that OppLoans and SalaryTap are entry-point products to introduce customers to OPFI and the OppFi Card is a brand extension, “graduation product” intended for its best OppLoan customers who have improved their credit profiles sufficiently to qualify for revolving credit.

OppFi signaled accelerating growth for SalaryTap and the OppFi Card. Earlier this month, OPFI announced its credit facility for SalaryTap increased 80% to $45 million and its $75 million credit facility for the OppFi Card was amended to support the product’s expansion, including permitting the pledging of receivables.

Introduce New Product Categories

OppFi’s longer-term growth strategy is to leverage its digitally-enabled lending platform to scale-up its financial services offerings for the underbanked everyday consumer. The OPFI strategic goal is to become the “SoFi” for this underserved consumer segment. By offering new products, OPFI can increase its average customer lifetime value by retaining customers as they improve their credit rating.

We think the most logical next product for OppFi to introduce is a “buy now, pay later” product. Katapult (KPLT), with its lease-to-own model, is currently one of the subprime leaders in this category, however we think that OPFI could easily enter this space, perhaps even with a different operating model, to leverage its customer database to quickly build market share. Longer-term, we expect OPFI to enter mortgage lending, auto lending, mobile banking, and investment platform categories. Since many subprime consumers lack access to traditional bank accounts, we suggest mobile banking would likely be the most lucrative category after point of sale lending. By launching mobile banking and investment platforms, OppFi would also make progress on its mission to help everyday consumers to save and build wealth.

Competitive Analysis

Based on its product portfolio, OppFi competes most closely today with other nonprime installment loan lenders. Within this niche, competitors include Elevate Credit (ELVT), Enova International (ENVA), CURO Group (CURO), and OneMain (OMF).

While ELVT tries to position itself as a fintech player with investments in technology, the reality is ELVT relies on direct mail for the majority of its originations (compared to 16% for OPFI), loan receivables were flat year over year in 2Q:21 (compared to up 19% for OPFI), and its adjusted EBITDA in 2Q:21 was down 70% (compared to up 255% for OPFI), resulting in ELVT being a turnaround (compared to a growth story for OPFI).

ENVA has a broader business model, with a 67/33 split between consumer and small-business loans and 32% of loans originated through direct marketing. Within consumer loans, ENVA offers sub-prime and near-prime loans. Subprime loans are originated under the CashNet USA brand with fee-based or interest rate pricing yielding between 100% and 450% annualized, which are “payday lender” level.

CURO operates in the United States and Canada, including being one of the largest “buy now, pay later” lenders in Canada and maintaining a strategic investment in KPLT. However, CURO’s direct lending business in the United States is in decline, and therefore OPFI is likely taking market share. This lending business operates under the Speedy Cash/ Rapid Cash brand names (“payday lenders”), as well as Avio Credit. Per its latest investor presentation, its U.S. loan balance was down year over year 4% in 2Q:21, plunged 33% in 1Q:21, dropped 39% in 4Q:20, and tanked 45% in 3Q:20. Guidance for U.S. direct lending 3Q:21 is for a year over year decline of 5% and modest 4% sequential increase.

OMF offers installment loans for near-prime consumers with both an online channel and the seventh largest branch network (1,400 locations) for a financial services company in the United States (inclusive of traditional banks). Moreover, OMF monetizes and funds its loan portfolio through asset-backed securities.

In summary, within the below prime installment loan lender niche, OPFI is the only one that resembles a real fintech with a robust digital platform, automated underwriting with artificial intelligence, and marketing focused on non-direct mail. Even more importantly, OPFI is outperforming this category with extraordinary origination and receivable growth.

2Q:21 Results

In 2Q:21, OppFi reported originations were $144 million, soaring 44% sequentially, 84% year over year, and 20% over the same period in 2019. Ending receivables were $260 million, increasing 6% sequentially, 19% year over year, and 29% over the same period in 2019. Adjusted EBITDA was flat sequentially at $32 million, due to increased marketing spend to fuel origination volume, however growth of 255% year-over-year and 39% was achieved.

Earnings Model

OPFI Financial ModelSource: Company investor presentation, The Bulls Bay proprietary estimates

We conservatively modeled full-year 2021 based on the midpoint of guidance OppFi introduced in its 2Q:21 earnings press release. For 2022 and 2023, we expect the increased marketing spend and new products, including the recently launched OppFi Card, to generate 40% annual revenue growth. However, as we discussed earlier, the increased marketing spend will be at the expense of margin. Consequently, we forecast that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income growth will be 25% and 20%, respectively. We think a higher top-line growth rate at the expense of the still significantly profitable bottom line will further differentiate OPFI from its slower growth nonprime installment loan competitors, while also distinguishing OPFI from its unprofitable, or marginally profitable, fintech peers.


The foundation of our investment thesis is OPFI is a mispriced fintech stock, by being misperceived as an ordinary nonprime lender. Due to this misperception, OPFI appears fully valued, given its premium valuation, relative to this peer group.

OPFI Nonprime Lending PeersSource: The Bulls Bay proprietary estimates

Given its digital platform, long-term business strategy, and core mission, OPFI should not be compared to ELVT, ENVA, CURO, or OMF for valuation purposes. Instead, we think comparable companies for OPFI valuation are true fintech players UPST, KPLT, and AFRM. UPST originates near-prime installment loans, while KPLT and AFRM are “buy now, pay later” lease-to-own fintech players for the subprime and prime consumer, respectively. While KPLT is marginally profitable, AFRM is unprofitable, and UPST trades at sky-high, unsustainable valuation multiples. In addition, for 2020, EBITDA margin was 13% for UPST and 16% for KPLT, whereas for OPFI 31%. Therefore, additional evidence for a valuation disconnect for OPFI is that it trades at significantly lower valuation multiples than UPST and KPLT while generating higher margins than them. Moreover, this provides OPFI with an additional reason to accelerate marketing spend to generate higher origination growth, while effectively lowering EBITDA margin.

OPFI Fintech PeersSource: The Bulls Bay proprietary estimates

While we acknowledge certain risks associated with subprime lending (read the risks section below), for reasons already discussed, we think OPFI deserves to trade at a higher valuation multiple than the non-fintech, slow growing lenders from which it is very likely to continue taking market share.

Given that we project 20% annual EPS growth for OPFI from 2021 through 2023, we suggest $12 as a baseline 12 month price target. We derive $12 by applying a 20x multiple to $0.99, the average of our 2022 and 2023 EPS estimates, and then applying a 40% discount due to anticipated dilution (read the risks section below).

Our bull case, assumes OPFI generates higher-than-expected origination and EBITDA growth and market perception substantially changes such that OPFI commands an even higher valuation multiple, more in-line with fintech players. With a matching its top-line growth rate, OPFI could trade as high as $25, 40x multiple to $0.99 that is discounted by 40% for dilution. Conversely, we think there is downside to our price target if origination growth is slower than expected or new state or federal laws cap the interest rates that OPFI can charge customers. Therefore, our bear case would be $5, representing 5x to $0.99 and no dilution discount as potential dilutive shares (and warrants) would be worthless.


1. Increase in 2021 guidance. When OppFi reported 2Q:21 results in August, the full-year guidance range was narrowed lower, citing the impact of government stimulus programs and the COVID-19 Delta variant. However, we think the current environment is much more favorable for OPFI, with rising consumer prices, lessening impact from the Delta variant, and the elimination of unemployment benefits along with a disappointing labor market. In addition, in late September, ELVT announced that “consumer credit has recovered faster and stronger than originally expected” and we think this bodes very well for OPFI.

2. New product launches. We expect OppFi to launch a “buy now, pay later” product, as well as a mobile banking platform in the next 12 to 18 months.

3. De-risking regulatory risk. Given the current regulatory risk associated with subprime lending, we think some investors are waiting for government action that would significantly reduce or eliminate threats to the interest rate that OppFi could charge consumers in exchange for sensible protections for consumers.


1. New regulatory action. While the regulatory risks that OppFi manages are real, we believe the perceived magnitude are exaggerated by those who conflate OPFI with payday lenders. Nonetheless, OPFI is confronted by an unlikely to pass bill in the U.S. Senate that would cap consumer loans at 36% and challenges based on “rent-a-charter” or “true lender” theories. However, giving support to OPFI and its peers, according to a study by the Federal Reserve Board, break-even for a $2,530 loan is a 36% APR (and even higher for smaller loan amounts). Therefore, a 36% interest rate cap would effectively eliminate small dollar loans, an unlikely outcome.

2. Highly concentrated bank partners. OppFi relies heavily on a small group of bank partners who utilize its digital lending platform and act as the “true lender” for installment loans. During 1H:21, FinWise accounted for 68% of net originations. However, OPFI actively seeks to grow its bank partnerships.

3. Dilution. There are currently 85 million shares outstanding. However, assuming OppFi shares appreciate to the mid-teens over the next three years, an additional 25 million SPAC-related earn-out shares would be added to the share count. In addition, 14 million public-traded warrants are exercisable when OPFI trades at $11.50 and another 13 million shares could be added to the share count from the management equity incentive plan and employee stock purchase plan. However, we also suggest that notwithstanding the significant dilution on a percentage basis, the actual effect on the share price may be minimal if OPFI commands a higher valuation multiple due to its growth, new product offerings, and recognition as a true fintech.


OPFI represents an intriguing way to invest in fintech at a very attractive comparative valuation, based on the stock being mispriced. Investors misperceive OPFI as an plain vanilla nonprime lender, despite its higher growth fueled by a digital platform powered by automated underwriting with artificial intelligence algorithms and non direct mail marketing initiatives. In addition, as a result of this misperception about where (and how) OPFI operates within the nonprime lending space, investors exaggerate the regulatory risk that the company confronts. In reality, OPFI is trying to help underbanked everyday consumers gain access to credit and over the longer-term save and invest their money within the OppFi ecosystem. As this under the radar story resonates with more investors, we expect OPFI to re-rate higher and appreciate more than 50% to $12 within the next 12 months (our base case) and potentially $25 (our bull case), with downside risk to $5 (bear case).

Methodology: How Credible evaluated lenders

Credible evaluated the best personal loan lenders for good credit based on a variety of factors, including customer experience, minimum fixed rate, maximum loan amount, funding time, loan terms, and fees.

What is a personal loan for good credit?

A personal loan for good credit is an unsecured loan that offers low interest rates and favorable terms. 

Good credit loans require not only a good credit score but also solid credit history and reliable income. If your income is low, you may not be eligible for the loan amount you need. Lenders may also require you to meet other stringent requirements to qualify for the best rates. 

Having good credit opens the door to more personal loan options, favorable interest rates and terms, and other benefits. If you have fair credit or lower, you may not be eligible for a personal loan through many lenders, or you may need the help of a cosigner to qualify. Good credit shows lenders you’re a responsible borrower and less of a lending risk than someone with a less impressive credit history. 

What’s a good score?

Most lenders use FICO credit scores to determine eligibility for a loan. FICO breaks its credit scores into five score categories ranging from 300 to 850.

  • Poor credit: 300 to 580
  • Fair credit: 580 to 669
  • Good credit: 670 to 739
  • Very good credit: 740 to 799
  • Exceptional (or excellent) credit: 800 to 850

FICO scores are determined using information from your credit reports. Five key factors determine your credit score. 

  • Payment history: Your payment history is how well you’ve handled paying creditors on time in the past. It accounts for 35% of your credit score.
  • Amounts owed: Your credit utilization is the amount of debt you have compared to the total credit you have available to use. Those who use a high percentage of available credit are considered high-risk borrowers to most lenders. Your credit utilization makes up 30% of your credit score.
  • Length of credit history: The age of your oldest and youngest credit accounts( the average age of your accounts) makes up 15% of your credit score. Having long-established credit accounts can boost your credit score and looks good to lenders.
  • New credit: Opening several new credit accounts over a short period looks risky to lenders. New credit accounts make up 10% of your credit score.
  • Credit mix: Lenders also like to look at what type of credit accounts you have open. Having a good mix of credit accounts, like installment loans, credit cards, mortgage loans, and other accounts, can help your cause when applying for a loan. Your credit mix makes up 10% of your credit score.

Lenders may also look at other factors like your income and employment history to determine if you’re a good credit risk. 

Why credit scores are important

Your credit score is a snapshot in time of your credit health, so lenders rely on credit scores to determine eligibility for loans and other products. Your score also factors into the interest rate and loan term options you may receive. 

Not only do lenders use credit scores to determine eligibility, but so do other businesses like cellphone providers. Insurance companies in some states may use credit information in determining insurance premiums. Landlords often check credit scores before renting an apartment or condo to a new tenant. Your credit score can open the door to more, and often better, options. 

How much does a personal loan for good credit cost?

Generally, your credit score and history, the amount you borrow, fees you pay, and the interest the lender charges will determine the cost of a personal loan. If you have good credit, a lender is more likely to give you a lower interest rate. And you may be subject to fewer fees than someone with poor credit.

For example, a lender may waive origination fees for people with good credit. But they may charge late fees for someone who doesn’t make their payments on time. 

What are good credit personal loan rates?

Interest rate ranges vary between different lenders. Most personal loan interest rates fall between 4.99% and 36% — with those lowest rates most likely going to people with good to excellent credit. The average national personal loan interest rate was 9.46% in the first quarter of 2021, according to the most recent data from the Federal Reserve.

Here’s an example of how credit scores and interest rates could affect the cost of a $5,000 personal loan with a five-year repayment term.

  • A borrower with poor credit might qualify for an interest rate of 30%. At the end of five years, they’ll have paid $9,706 — $4,706 in interest charges.
  • A borrower with fair credit may get an interest rate of 20%. Their total interest charge will be $2,948 — $1,758 less than the borrower with poor credit paid.
  • A borrower with good credit might qualify for a loan at just 10%. Over the life of the loan, they’ll pay $3,332 less than the borrower with poor credit — just $1,374 in interest.

 The interest rate you receive plays an enormous role in how much your personal loan will end up costing you. 

What are some personal loan fees?

When you take out a personal loan, it’s common for lenders to charge fees. Here are some common fees you may encounter when looking for a personal loan. 

  • Origination fees: Lenders often charge loan origination fees to cover their underwriting and processing costs. Origination fees are typically a percentage of the loan and are subtracted from the total loan amount.
  • Application fees: Although not as common as origination fees, some lenders use loan application fees to cover the cost to process a loan application.
  • Prepayment penalties: If you pay off your loan early, you may end up paying prepayment penalties. Not all lenders charge this fee, but it’s meant to help them recoup some of the interest they would have received if the loan went to full term.
  • Late payment fees: Lenders charge late payment fees when a borrower is late making monthly payments. Many lenders allow you to set up automatic payments to ensure that you won’t end up paying any late fees.

It’s always free to compare rates from multiple lenders using Credible.

What are the pros and cons of personal loans for good credit?

Like any financial product, personal loans have advantages and disadvantages. It’s always a good idea to weigh the pros and cons before applying for a personal loan.


  • Lower interest rates: Personal loans typically have lower interest rates than credit cards, so they can be a good option for debt consolidation or a big purchase.
  • No collateral needed: Most personal loans are unsecured, meaning you don’t have to put up any collateral. This means there’s no risk of losing possessions like your house or car like there is with a secured loan.
  • Easy payment management: If you’re using a loan to consolidate debt, you only have to worry about one monthly payment instead of several.
  • Pay for purchases over time: Personal loans allow you to afford large purchases or home improvement projects now and pay them off with manageable monthly payments over an extended period.


  • Potentially high penalties and fees: Personal loans come with fees and sometimes penalties, especially if you pay them off early. Always factor these costs into your decision.
  • May not solve your debt problem: Getting a personal loan to consolidate debt is great as long as you use it to pay off debt. If your debt is the result of consistently overspending, getting a personal loan may just free up space on your credit cards for more debt.
  • You may not receive the loan amount needed: Applying for a $50,000 personal loan doesn’t guarantee that’s how much you’ll receive. If your credit or income isn’t up to par, you may be offered less money.
  • Payments are higher: Monthly loan payments can be more than your minimum monthly credit card payment. But keep in mind that with a personal loan you’ll be reducing the principal of the debt, whereas a minimum credit card payment is mostly made up of interest charges.

How to compare good credit personal loans and lenders

You should always take time to compare lenders to find the right personal loan for your needs. Here are some factors to keep in mind when looking for a personal loan. 

  • APR: APR stands for annual percentage rate. It includes the interest rate and any loan fees you might pay, so it’s a better measure of a loan’s total cost. Most lenders charge upfront fees, but the APR is the same as the interest rate when there are no fees.
  • Fees: Added fees can make your personal loan more expensive. Lenders subtract origination fees from your loan total before disbursing the loan, which can cut into the total amount you receive.
  • Repayment terms: The length of your loan term determines your monthly payment and also affects how much interest you’ll end up paying on your loan. Shorter loan terms usually mean paying less interest overall. A longer loan term will lower your monthly payments, but you’ll end up paying interest for a longer period.
  • Loan type: Personal loans are available for almost any need, like home improvements or to cover medical expenses. The type of personal loan you choose can often affect the rates you receive.
  • Lenders: It’s not just about the personal loan. You should also research the lenders to make sure you’re working with a reputable lender that offers quality customer service.

How to get a personal loan for good credit

Getting a personal loan isn’t complicated, but there are specific steps you should take to secure the right loan for your situation. 

1. Determine your needs

Before you take out a loan, determine how much money you need to borrow to accomplish the purpose of your loan. Whether it’s a home improvement project, paying off credit card debt, or something else, add up any expenses or estimate the total amount you’ll need. Use a personal loan calculator to estimate how much you’ll pay for a loan. 

2. Check your credit score

It’s always a good idea to know where you stand before applying for any loan or other financial product. Knowing your credit score will help you determine what types of personal loans are available to you, and the kind of rates you might receive. 

You can take this one step further and obtain a free copy of your credit report from each of the three national credit bureaus at Your credit report will give you greater insight into where you stand, and it’s also a chance to look for any errors that might be affecting your credit. 

3. Compare rates and offers from multiple lenders

Shop around to find the best rates. You can find personal loans through online lenders, banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions. Shopping around allows you to find the most competitive rates and run the numbers before applying for a loan. 

4. Prequalify 

Prequalification takes checking rates one step further and only requires a soft credit check. You can prequalify with multiple lenders without affecting your credit. It also gives you a better idea of the loan deal each might offer you. 

5. Choose the one that best fits your needs

Once you’ve shopped around for the best rates, take time to compare your needs to the best personal loans and lender options to find the one that makes sense to you. 

6. Apply

Once you’ve determined the best lender and personal loan type for you, start the application process. Most lenders allow you to apply online. During the application process, the lender will ask you to provide personal and financial information and documents to verify your identity and provide a more well-rounded picture of your finances

The application process time may vary depending on the lender, the type of loan, and other factors. If you’re approved, the process ends by accepting the loan and receiving your funds. Depending on the lender, funds can sometimes arrive the same or next business day. 

Note the date of your first payment and make a plan to pay off your loan. Some lenders offer rate discounts for setting up automatic payments, which can also help you avoid late fees. 

You can quickly compare rates and get prequalified for a personal loan using Credible.

Alternatives to personal loans for good credit

Personal loans are a great way to consolidate debt or pay for large purchases over time, but they aren’t suitable for everyone, especially if your credit doesn’t meet lender requirements. Here are other options to consider. 

  • Home equity lines of credit: Home equity lines of credit, or HELOCs, are an option if you have equity in your home. Unlike a personal loan, a HELOC is secured using your home. There’s a risk of repossession if you can’t repay what you borrow. On the other hand, you may qualify for a lower interest rate than you’d  receive with an unsecured personal loan.
  • Peer-to-peer loans: Peer-to-peer loans are a type of personal loan with funding through multiple investors instead of a lender. These types of loans often provide more flexibility with loan terms and lower rates than other personal loans.
  • Balance transfer credit cards: If you’re looking for a loan to pay off existing credit card debt, a balance transfer card might be an option. Balance transfer credit cards often come with introductory 0% APR offers for up to 18 or 24 months. If you can pay off your total balance during the introductory period, you won’t pay any interest. Keep in mind that most credit card issuers charge a balance transfer fee, usually between 3% and 5% of the balance, added to the total amount owed. And if you don’t repay the full amount by the end of the introductory period, you could face hefty interest charges.

Personal lines of credit:

 A personal line of credit lets you draw from a specified credit limit similar to a credit card, but it also features loan terms and interest rates more comparable to a personal loan. With a personal line of credit, you only pay interest on the amount you borrow, not the total credit limit.

  • Privacy policy of each company

  • Customer reviews
  • How long does the company take to approve requests
  • Number of lenders associated with the company

Firstly, if you want your loan request to get approved, you shouldn’t have any recent bankruptcy. This means if you’ve declared bankruptcy in the near past, then you shouldn’t expect Personal Loans to approve your loan request.

Secondly, you shouldn’t have any debt which is higher than your income. Moreover, the company does the credit check to see if you have followed the pattern of making late payments. If any of this is true, then your request won’t be approved.

This feature builds trust between the company and customers.

After your request is approved and you are connected to a lender, the lender will contact you. At Personal Loans, you are free from putting any additional information before you are connected to a lender. So, if you choose not to add that information, then now is the time to share additional details.

The lender then presents you with terms and conditions that you should carefully read before making any commitment. Once you approve the terms, the lender transfers funds to your account in less than one business day.

Flexible Repayment System

Personal Loans steps out of the loop once you are connected to a lender. But lenders working with Personal Loans are still bound to follow their rules. This means lenders have to protect your privacy and provide you with a flexible repayment system.

So, in case you miss your deadline, you can contact your lender and ask him to extend your deadline or request a modified repayment schedule. This factor helps customers make payments at times which complement the income stream.

However, this doesn’t mean every customer will be granted a new repayment schedule. Your lender is more likely to offer you a newly devised repayment structure only if you have a good credit score and good repayment history.

User Guide

Different factors come into play when you are in search of online loans with same-day approval. If you are looking for a reliable online loan service, then you should consider the following factors:

Most lenders offering online loans with same-day approval require your credit score before approving your request. The chances of you finding a lender increase when your credit score is 620 or above. So, make sure you go to a lender who doesn’t demand a credit score too high.

Furthermore, the debt to income ratio is considered important. This is because lenders want assurance that you will repay your loan on time. Some lenders might even check factors like your yearly income to determine your strength to repay.

Therefore, before filling out a form of any lender, make sure you meet its eligibility criteria.

  • Interest Rates Charged At Each Network

You should always look at the interest rates charged by each network. Interest rates are important to look at because they are paid out every month. The higher the interest rate charge, the harder it will get for you to pay punctually.

Before settling for a lender, understand the difference between fluctuating interest rates and fixed interest rates charged by bad credit lenders. The former changes along with the index rate changes, whereas the latter stays the same throughout.

So, go for fluctuating interest rates if you expect the index rate to fall.

  • Terms And Conditions At Each Company

Terms and conditions held immense importance. These terms explain everything from privacy policy to amount of repayment, APR, and penalties. You should carefully read these terms to make sure they suit your requirements and. You don’t want to get stuck with conditions that aren’t in line with your repayment ability.

Lenders mentioned above don’t charge fees to their customers. However, they might require you to make different payments. These payments can be advance or late payments, origination fees, processing fees, penalties charged on late payments, and more.

Penalties can range from $15 to $30 and might negatively impact your credit score. Therefore, you should opt for a lender who doesn’t charge any late fees or allow an additional time of a couple of days before charging a penalty.

You mostly look for loans when you don’t have funds to support your expenses. However, make sure you have some savings that you can use to make monthly payments in case your monthly income isn’t enough.

These savings will save you from defaulting or facing any penalties. Moreover, you can lose your job if you don’t repay your loan. So, it is better to employ those savings and save your job than lose an income stream for upcoming years.

Q. What Are The Different Requirements To Obtain A Loan?

The requirements vary according to the kind of loan you want. Moreover, the requirements might be different from lender to lender. For example, a car loan will require you to tell them about the car you want. Whereas to obtain a business loan, you will need to provide information like your business plan.

But there are multiple requirements that each network asks for. Some of them include the following:

  • Customer’s name
  • Area of residence and a valid phone number
  • National identity card
  • A form of security or collateral if you are applying for a secured loan
  • Bank statement and payslip
  • Social security number
  • Employment history and contact of the employer

Q. Can I Apply For The Loan And Receive Funds On The Same Day?

Financial distress leaves no time for people to find funds. During an emergency, you might not have enough time to wait for funds. Sometimes, the emergency is so bad that you might need a loan the same day you apply.

Here is good news. There are several networks out there providing same-day loans to their customers. Most lenders transfer money to your account in one business day. Moreover, some loan companies take a few minutes to approve your loan request.

The trick is to apply for the loan quickly. The earlier you apply, the quicker your request is approved, and funds are transferred to your account. So, you should apply for a loan in the morning when you receive bad news regarding unexpected expenses rather than waiting for the night.

Don’t rush the process by ignoring terms and conditions. This can cause severe issues for you in the future.

You can increase the chances of getting a quick approval by choosing a lender service you have previously used. The chances are that the lender will already have your information on board, so it will be easier for the lender to approve your request quickly.

Make sure you repay your loan on time and make timely payments after you have received funds. This act will improve your credit history and help you find loans more quickly and easily in the future.

Q. Is There A Minimum Standard Set For Online Loans With Same-Day Approval?

Companies mentioned above provide same-day loans to their customers even if their credit score is as low as 570. As long as you clear the company’s eligibility criteria, you are good to go. However, this might not be the case everywhere. Sometimes, when the market is saturated or demand is higher than supply, even people with a good credit score cannot find loans.

There are a lot of opportunities for people with bad credit records. However, this should not stop you from working on improving your credit score. A good credit record will bring new benefits for you, including low interest rates, higher repayment periods, and more.

Q. Will I Have To Pay A Higher Interest Rate For Online Loans With Same-Day Approval?

Interest rates vary from lender to lender. Moreover, interest rates are charged by the lender, whereas the company approves loan requests. So, quick approval doesn’t mean you will be charged with a higher interest rate.

You might be charged with a high-interest rate if you have a bad credit statement. This is because lenders charge a higher rate to compensate for the risk they are taking. A lender might charge you a higher interest rate if you have agreed to repay in a longer period.

On average, lenders charge between 5.5% and 36%. The rate charged mainly depends on credit record and the repayment period. So, you don’t have to worry about paying a higher interest rate if you are looking for online loans with same-day approval.

Concluding Thoughts

Mumbai: Lenders are once again slowing down microfinance loans, credit cards and personal loans as they consider these unsecured loans to have become riskier in the middle of the second wave of the pandemic.

The performance of these loans is deteriorating given the low capital cushion and risky nature of these assets, said lenders, who have become very cautious while providing new unsecured loans.

“Unsecured retail, credit cards and microfinance loans pose a much higher risk,” said Kotak Mahindra Bank Managing Director Uday Kotak. “We will definitely be pushing the gas and doing credit underwriting and keeping in mind that there will be a huge fundraising challenge ahead for the entire financial industry.”

The private lender had reduced its unsecured portfolio to 5.8% of total credit at the end of March, against 7.5% a year earlier.

Peer IDBI Bank, which recently managed to evade rapid remedial action by the Reserve Bank of India, is also avoiding such loans.

“We absolutely don’t want to waste risky assets; our goal is to onboard clients who have a credit score of 700 and above, ”said Rakesh Sharma, Managing Director of IDBI Bank. “We have kept a very small portion of the unsecured books. Our goal is to develop the mortgage loan portfolio.

Personal loans in the banking sector grew at a slower pace of 10.2% in the most recent fiscal year ended March 31, compared to more than 15% the year before, according to RBI data. Durable consumer loans were the hardest hit and were contracted by more than 21% between March 2020 and 2021. The segment had grown by 47.6% the previous year.

Outstanding credit cards totaled Rs 1.16 lakh crore at the end of March, an increase of 7.8% in one year against growth of more than 22.5% in fiscal year 2020.

“We have always said that our unsecured portfolio represents less than 5% of our overall loan portfolio and that is the stated intention. We felt that the unsecured portfolio takes time to build and that you need to have internal clients before you start to develop this portfolio, ”said Sumant Kathpalia, Managing Director of IndusInd Bank.

National rating firm India Ratings said that due to a doubling of stress on individuals, banks over the past year have tightened the filters, especially on new bank customers, and have therefore slowed down. disbursements. This, along with the lack of a nationwide foreclosure like last year, could prevent comparable stress in retail assets, he said.

The aversion to unsecured loans has led banks to push home loans and gold lending more. The outstanding mortgage loans increased by 9.1% to reach 14.5 lakh crore in fiscal year 2021. Gold loans saw the largest increase with a total outstanding amount reaching Rs 60,464 crore, or a 81.6% increase in one year.

Alabama AG office hires embryology expert as witness in abortion ban lawsuit Thu, 21 Oct 2021 15:30:52 +0000 Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall has hired an associate professor at the University of Utah School of Medicine as an expert witness in the lawsuit challenging Alabama’s abortion ban, passed by the legislature in 2019.

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall has hired an associate professor at the University of Utah School of Medicine as an expert witness in the lawsuit challenging Alabama’s abortion ban, passed by the legislature in 2019.

Maureen L. Condic, associate professor of neurobiology and anatomy, taught human embryology at the Utah School of Medicine for 20 years. The Trump administration appointed her to the National Science Board in 2018, for a six-year term.

The contract was passed by the Legislative Assembly’s Contract Review Committee at the monthly expert panel meeting today.

Contracts for four other experts hired by Marshall’s office for the abortion law case passed by the committee in July. The contracts are for two years and will earn up to $ 75,000 each.

Alabama lawmakers passed a bill in 2019 banning abortion at any time during pregnancy except to protect the woman from a serious health risk. It would be a crime for a doctor to perform an abortion. Governor Kay Ivey signed the bill.

Planned Parenthood Southeast, the ACLU of Alabama, and the state’s three abortion clinics filed a complaint claiming that the bill violated women’s constitutional rights to choose an abortion before the viability of the fetus.

U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson issued a preliminary injunction in October 2019 block law enforcement a few weeks before it takes effect. The case remains in Thompson court.

Supporters of the Alabama abortion ban have said the goal is to trigger a lawsuit that will reach the Supreme Court for a review of the Roe v. Wade on abortion rights.

It appears that the judges will first consider the case of a neighboring state.

The Mississippi legislature passed a bill banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. A district court blocked the law and an appeals court upheld the ruling. In May, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case.

Marshall joined 23 other attorneys general asking the Supreme Court to uphold Mississippi law and overthrow Roe v. Wade. Ivey and 11 other governors filed an amicus brief in support of the Mississippi law.

This story has been edited to remove a line that says Marshall’s office is appealing Thompson’s decision. The case remains in Thompson court for now.

All the lenders in the Credible market offer fixed rate loans at competitive rates. Since lenders use different methods to assess borrowers, it is a good idea to apply for personal loan rates from multiple lenders so that you can compare your options.

Current rates for personal loans by credit score

Depending on factors such as your credit rating, the type of personal loan you are looking for, and the loan repayment term, the interest rate may differ.

As the table above shows, a good credit rating can mean a lower interest rate, and rates tend to be higher on longer term, fixed interest rate loans.

How to get a lower interest rate

There are many factors that influence the interest rate a lender might offer you on a personal loan. But there are steps you can take to increase your chances of getting a lower interest rate. Here are some tactics to try.

Increase credit score

Generally, people with a higher credit score are eligible for lower interest rates. Steps that can help you improve your credit score over time include:

  • Pay your bills on time. Payment history is the most important factor in your credit score. Pay all of your bills on time for the amount owed.
  • Check your credit report. Examine your credit report to make sure there are no errors. If you find any errors, dispute them with the credit bureau.
  • Reduce your credit utilization rate. Paying off credit card debt can improve this important credit scoring factor.
  • Avoid opening new credit accounts. Only ask for and open the credit accounts that you really need. Too many inquiries about your credit report in a short period of time could lower your credit score.

Choose a shorter loan term

Personal loan repayment terms can vary from one to several years. Typically, shorter terms come with lower interest rates because the lender’s money is at risk for a shorter period.

If your financial situation allows it, applying for a shorter term could help you get a lower interest rate. Keep in mind that the shorter term doesn’t just benefit the lender: by choosing a shorter repayment term, you’ll pay less interest over the life of the loan.

Get a co-signer

You may be familiar with the concept of co-signer if you have student loans. If your credit is not sufficient to qualify for the best interest rates on personal loans, find a co-signer with good credit could help you get a lower interest rate.

Remember that if you do not repay the loan, your co-signer will be responsible for repaying it. And co-signing for a loan could also affect their credit score.

Compare rates from different lenders

Before applying for a personal loan, it’s a good idea to shop around and compare the offers of several different lenders to get the lowest rates. Online lenders usually offer the most competitive rates and can disburse your loan faster than a physical establishment.

But don’t worry, comparing rates and terms doesn’t have to be a tedious process.

Credible makes it easy. Just enter the amount you want to borrow and you can compare several lenders to choose the one that suits you best.

Do you want to benefit from a competitive interest rate on a personal loan? You will need good credit.

The advantage of getting a personal loan is that you can use this money for any reason. If you have credit card debt that you want to pay off more affordably, you can take out a personal loan at a lower interest rate and drop your balances. Or you can take out a personal loan for:

But if you are going to take out a personal loan, it is important that you have a good credit rating when you apply. Here’s why.

Your score could be your most valuable asset

When you take out a mortgage, that home loan is secured by the asset it is used to finance – your home. If you don’t pay off your mortgage, your lender may force the sale of your home in order to be paid off. The same goes for a car loan. Fall behind on your payments, and your lender can repossess your car and sell it to meet your loan obligation.

However, personal loans work differently. Personal loans are unsecured loans which means that they are not tied to any specific asset. If you don’t pay off your personal loans, there is nothing your lender can force you to sell in order to get their money back.

For this reason, personal lenders can be quite picky about the applicants they approve. And they tend to favor applicants who come in with good credit scores.

The higher your score, the more likely you are to not only get approved, but also get a competitive interest rate on a personal loan. To be clear it is It is possible to qualify for a personal loan if your credit score is not as strong, but you could end up with a high interest rate which makes the loan much less affordable.

How to increase your credit score

If you are looking to apply for a personal loan but are not excited about how your credit score looks, it is worth working on improving it before submitting this application. You can do this in several ways:

  • Pay your bills on time, which will result in a more favorable payment history. Your payment history carries more weight than any other factor in calculating your credit score.
  • Pay off some existing credit card debt. This will lower your credit usage rate, which is another big factor that goes into determining your score. That said, if you are in a situation where you need to take out a personal loan, you may not be able to afford the debt you already have.
  • Check for credit report errors. If there are any mistakes that work against you, correcting them could improve your score quickly.

If you are applying for a personal loan, a good credit rating can make it easier to get approved and earn an affordable interest rate. Check your credit score before applying for a personal loan so you don’t be disappointed.
