Quick guide to personal loans
When used for good debt, such as a tertiary education, a personal loan can be a means of improving your earning capacity. We outline some pointers for those who are considering a personal loan.
If you’re struggling to meet your monthly debt repayments, a consolidation loan could be the answer you need. We consider what to ask before signing up for one of these.
Even with an emergency fund and adequate insurance, you may still land up with unexpected medical expenses. Chosen correctly, a personal loan could be among your better options.
Home renovations or repairs
Home renovations can greatly increase the value of your property. We consider whether, and when, a personal loan would be viable for funding these.
Planning for the day a loved one dies can be difficult and emotive. Funeral cover pays out on the death of the insured, but the amount may not be sufficient to cover all expenses. A personal loan can help to bridge the shortfall, when considered carefully.
It’s not wise to go into debt for luxuries or unnecessary expenses. Make sure you know the difference between good and bad debt before you take out a personal loan.
