We have seen in South Africa that sometimes it doesn’t matter how many jobs you have, some of us just can’t meet ends need. That is why South African consumers option for a personal loan, to help them with immediate financial support. Not all of us are as lucky as other ones; if you have bad credit then the chances are good that you will be ignored by most lending institutions due to the high risk that you impose towards the lender. In this article will I share some tips if you have bad credit and in desperate need of a personal loan.
1) One of the best tips that I can give is to provide the lender with a proof of employment or proof of income. There are numerous lending institutions that will grant you the loan if you can proof to them that you have a steady income, even if you have a bad credit rating. The lender will then see that you will be able to make payments towards them.
2) I would also suggest that you keep copies of all your previous paid bills. Make sure that all of those bills that you will show them are all paid on time. This will give the lender more confidence in you, knowing that you are strict, punctual and disciplined with your payments. You should show them that you are not a risk to them if they decide to qualify you for the personal loan.
3) If you find yourself in the situation where you are not permanently employed, but you have property, equipment or a car, then you can use those items as collateral to apply for the loan. This means that if you fail to pay the loan then the lender or the bank will simply take some of your possessions which add up to the same amount as the outstanding debt. This is thus a risky business, as we have seen a lot of people who looses their car or house. Discipline is crucial when it comes to this form of loans.
If you have a bad credit score, then it's highly unlikely that you will get a loan. Get your credit score first and see where you can improve.
Due to the fast advancing technology, we are now able to apply for these loans on the internet. If you are permanently employed, then I would also suggest that you apply for a pay-day loan. This is a very popular form of loan because if you get granted the loan, then it would be automatically deducted from your salary. If you have an extra saving account then you can even pay more than the expected minimum towards the loan.
If you are worried that you might not get approved for a loan because of your bad credit, then you can put your mind at ease, knowing that there are numerous ways to get that much needed loan. Using the above mentioned advice will certainly help you to get that loan.
