Are Bad Credit Loans an Option?

Getting a loan can be stressful, especially for people with less than perfect credit. If you’re going through a time where you need financial help, bad credit loans may be an option for you. Even if your credit score is not so great, and lenders have denied you.

If you’re concerned that you won’t qualify for a loan due to poor credit, our short-term loan options may be for you!

What Does ‘Bad Credit’ Mean?

If you have a credit card, needed to pay a bill over time, or have taken out a loan you have a credit history. Your credit history score determines if you will be a high-risk or low-risk borrower.

  1. Bill payment history
  2. Credit use
  3. Length of credit history
  4. New credit
  5. Credit mix

These five factors will contribute to whether you have good or bad credit.  A score below 500 is a bad score according to lenders. Additionally, many lenders view no credit history as “bad credit” making it difficult for new borrowers to find a loan.

Unfortunately, poor credit can affect your ability to get a loan in the future. It can also increase existing and future credit rates.

What Causes Bad Credit?

Having a better understanding of what could lower your score is one of the best ways to avoid poor credit. Here are some of the most common situations that contribute to bad credit:

  • Making late payments on credit cards
  • Filing for bankruptcy
  • Unpaid judgments
  • Defaulting on a loan
  • Foreclosure

If you have experienced any of the above factors, there are options to get bad credit loans when you need it most.
