Personal loans are one of the most versatile financial products available. They can be used to cover a range of expenses such as making home improvements or purchasing a vehicle. Since personal loans are unsecured, meaning borrowers aren’t required to put up a collateral, lenders use factors such as income, credit score or job history to determine eligibility. Personal loans allow you to borrow a fixed amount of money and pay it back with interest in monthly installments, which can be a valuable asset in building good credit.
