Understanding Personal Loans

A personal loan is a form of unsecured debt that is flexible in its use. The versatility of the loan allows you to decide what purpose the funds are borrowed for. While car loans and mortgages are strictly used for one purpose, personal loans allow you the choice. Whether it be for home renovations, covering bills, consolidating debt, or even a much needed vacation - how you use your loan is up to you!

Lending Basics

To initiate the borrowing process you will need to start an application to the bank or a financial institution. The application will determine your ability to repay the loan, and ultimately determine what interest rate you're offered. Details like your income, credit score, and financial history will be analyzed during this process. If you are ultimately approved, your repayment terms will be established and you'll be issued the funds. The repayment terms outline the amount of each payment, monthly or bi-weekly, for the duration of your loan term.

Why Choose Personal Loans?

Personal loans come with a number of additional benefits outside of their flexibility of use. As they are often unsecured, you don't risk losing your assets in the lending process. They are also a good tool for emergencies as the approval process is often quick. Also, when used correctly - and paid back promptly - they can significantly help to improve your credit score.


Understanding the value of personal loans, and how to use them, is a good first step towards financial empowerment. Remember that in order to become a successful borrower, you need to be a well-informed borrower. Follow the CreditLinks blog as we delve deeper into additional aspects of financial success, such as how to improve your credit score, comparing interest rates, and how to avoid common application mistakes.
