What is a bad credit loan?

It is important to understand what a bad credit loan is. The term is often used by individuals who have had adverse credit issues in the past and who are searching for a new loan. Technically, there is no such thing as a bad credit loan and the term itself does not give any real information about the applicant or their credit history. A loan, no matter the purpose is either unsecured or secured.

Types of loans for bad credit

Chances are, if you have recently had adverse credit then you will probably not qualify for a loan with a low-interest rate. The following types of loans are generally available for applicants with bad credit.

  • Unsecured personal loans
  • If you are looking to combine existing debt into one repayment then a debt consolidation loan should be considered
  • If you have a close family member who can guarantor your loan
