Yes. Although we can’t guarantee that you will receive offers, our goal is to match borrowers of all credit backgrounds with affordable, common-sense loan alternatives. Several of our partner lenders focus on providing innovative financing to borrowers with less than perfect credit.
A personal loan, like a credit a card, is a form of unsecured credit, meaning you do not have to pledge anything as collateral. However, personal loans come with fixed durations and interest rates, which result in fixed monthly payment and an established pay-off date. In addition, some personal lenders allow qualified borrowers to receive up $100,000 at rates much better than the average credit card. Credit cards have variable interest rates that fluctuate over time and don’t have a fixed payoff schedule, which can result in more than 20 years of monthly payments.
The interest rate is the percentage of the total loan amount that a lender charges you for borrowing money. The APR (annual percentage rate) represents the total cost of borrowing, including the interest rate plus any other fees charged by the lender.
You must be a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident, 18 years of age or older, and currently reside in the United States. Being eligible does not guarantee that you qualify for a loan. Each lender has a unique set of qualifying criteria.
No. One of our lender qualifying criteria is that they use a “soft” credit pull when analyzing a prospective borrower and offering a rate quote. Soft credit inquiries do not negatively impact your credit score.
Once you’ve selected the best offer and decide to proceed with a prequalified rate, the lender will likely require that you provide additional information, as well as perform a hard credit pull. Hard credit pulls may negatively impact your credit score.
We will never sell your personal information to 3rd parties. We take your privacy very seriously and take all precautions to protect it.
We are currently working on providing customized loan offers from our partner lenders. Until then, we can only show you APR ranges based on the information you’ve provided us. If you wish to pursue an offer with one of these lenders, simply click “Apply” to complete the lender’s process.
Each of the lenders should provide you with a response as to why you did not qualify for their loans. If you were declined due to missing documentation or proof of income or education, you can try to resubmit with the proper documents. Sometimes lenders will allow for additional options, such as resubmitting with a cosigner, or applying for a smaller loan. If you applied only to the lenders that cater to borrowers with prime credit, you may elect to broaden your search to lenders that cater to a broader borrower pool. Finally, we are always looking to add new lenders that offer different products, and we can reach out to you as they join the platform if we think you may qualify for the new offerings.
