Personal Loans



1. Personal loans can come in either a lump sum or revolving line of credit.

True
Funds distributed in the form of a lump sum usually have a fixed interest rate, while lines of credit have variable rates. Different lenders have varying terms, conditions and eligibility requirements. It is best to shop around or research on the Internet to find out what type of financing options they are best suited for.


2. Personal loans are a type of secured loan.

False
They are unsecured in nature, meaning that no personal belongings are needed as collateral. The applicant borrows on their power to repay the balance. Interest rates on this type of funding will vary depending on the borrower's credit.


3. Obtaining your credit report before applying for personal loans is wise.

True
Interest rates can always be negotiated. Knowing a credit score can give the borrower the confidence to get a lower finance rate on their personal loan. Obtaining the credit report also gives the borrower the ability to correct any misinformation before applying for personal financing. The credit report can be obtained through a request made to any one of the three major credit reporting bureaus: Equifax, Experian, and Tran Union.


4. Personal loans are to be used only to pay off your credit card debt.

False
They do not have to be used to pay off credit cards. There are no restrictions on the end use of such financing, so the borrower can use the money for whatever purpose they like. Many people take out these types of loans to take care of an unexpected expense, make a big purchase, or to have available credit in case of emergencies.


5. Personal loans can be a way to practice good financial management.

True
Proverbs 27:23-24 - Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation?
