You can’t borrow cash from people you know because their budget is intact too, so it’s like you have no more options that you feel like it’s your end. But someone suggested that you should get a short-term loan in order to cover up your financial issue at the moment, but you have no idea how to do it.
We can gladly help you about that! In this article, we will discuss how to apply for a payday loan and what to watch out before you do it.
But first, here are some basic information about unsecured loans:
What is a payday loan?
A payday loan is a short-term lending where a person can borrow cash with an equivalent interest rate upon repayment. The borrower typically fills up a form that needs to have his/her details including the date he/she wishes to get the said cash, the amount that he wishes to borrow and some bank account information. After being evaluated and approved the loaned fund is to be sent to an agreed date between the lender and the borrower, whether in the bank account of the borrower or get it personally to the lending office. This is also known as the cash advance loans or salary loans.
How much can you borrow on a payday loan and how much is the interest rate?
Lenders offer cash for as low as £150 up to £2000 depending on the lending company that you chose to apply. The interest depends on how you will repay the amount you’ve borrowed over time. Usually, the shorter the time of repayment, the higher their interest rate. The rate usually in the range of 10% – 30% of the amount of the loan that you’ll get.
How will I repay the funds that I’ve loaned?
Often most, lenders deduct the payment in your pay check every payday, hence the name payday loan. but you can also do a voluntary payment where they will notify you about your repayment date and you can just repay it in every kind of money transfer available (remittance centre or bank deposit etc.) but this is risky, because if you neglect your repayment you will get a penalty fee that will add up to your total repayment, which will add up to your expenses also.
