What is a personal unsecured, closed-end loan? Aside from being a mouthful to say, it is a type of personal installment loan that is geared toward people with limited assets. Why is that such a good thing? Because you do not need to borrow against the equity in a home or hand over a car title to get extra money.
They are great loans for consolidating debt or for one-time expenses such as weddings, vacations or upgrading your personal computer.
Closed-End Loan vs. Credit Card
You may be thinking… why get a personal loan when you could just use a credit card that may have a lower interest rate?
If you can pay your credit card balances off quickly, a credit card may be the right option for you.
However if you tend to have a higher balance for a longer length of time, than a closed-ended loan may be a better option.
Yes, the overall interest rate may initially be higher with the personal loan. But the closed-end, set monthly payment feature makes it more appealing to credit scoring companies. Why? Because you are making scheduled monthly payments toward a specific amount of money for a specific length of time.
