Apply for a loan through Justmoney.
What is a loan?
A loan is a borrowed sum of money that can immediately assist with costs like buying your dream home or car, furthering your studies, or footing unexpected costs.
There are two types of loans – secured and unsecured.
A loan is considered secured when the borrower pledges an asset as collateral in the event that they default on their payments. For example, a home loan is tied to the value of your home and if you are unable to make your payments, the creditor can repossess it.
An unsecured loan, on the other hand, is considered an agreement that is not backed by an asset. Examples of this include personal loans or consumer loans. Unsecured loans have higher interest rates because creditors cannot rely on an asset to compensate them if you default on your payments.
Why a Loan?
A loan can be used for a variety of things, such as your dream car, home renovations, or covering unexpected medical expenses. If you cannot afford an item upfront, a loan will help you benefit from it at once, while allowing you to systematically pay it off.
Aside from the typical loan spends like a car, home, or student loan, many people also acquire debt to cover things like a vacation or a wedding. Here’s a simple rule of thumb for taking on debt – only go into debt when absolutely necessary or for appreciating assets.
Examples of good reasons to take out a personal loan include paying for unexpected medical expenses or home renovations.
The trick to managing a loan is ensuring you can make the repayments. If you want a loan because you are struggling to pay off other debts, then debt consolidation or debt counselling is more suitable.
