Personal Loans Support Every Credit Requirement

By: Bernard John

But, personal loans, as the name suggests, are for diverse human needs. Of all three, the personal loan category has the largest scope, as the span of human needs is incalculable. Hence, its popularity is invincible.

Report shows that the UK personal loans market was worth ?83 million (approx.) in the year 2006 and at present accounts for over a quarter of total consumer credit gross lending. According to market analysts, people are gradually realising that multiple overdrafts and payment card debts - in the form of credit cards, cash cards and store cards - prove to be more costly, as they have high interest rates. Hence, they are expecting the demand to grow by 19% by 2011.

Nowadays, the competition is so intense that most lenders are offering customised personal loan products to target maximum number of potential borrowers. Bad credit loans, business loans, car loans, career development loans, cosmetic surgery loans, debt consolidation loans, education loans, holiday loans, homeowner loans, home improvement loans and wedding loans - are the most popular ones.

The above-stated list of products prove that personal loans offer diverse monetary solutions in both secured (credit assistance against collateral) and unsecured (credit assistance without collateral) form. The basic point of differentiation between the two sub-types is the presence or absence of collateral, which has both advantages and disadvantages.

Demand for both sub-types is increasing because they both prove to be beneficial in different situations. Basically, no financial product follows a one-size-fits-all approach, and is designed with specific criteria and customers in mind. Experts say that most of us try to make informed choices that enable us to improve our lifestyles - a financial product should be no different.

The decision to take up a secured or unsecured type of personal credit is ultimately about the consumer choice - it is one option that will be suitable for some and not for others. Hence, borrowers are advised to go through the pros and cons of personal loans and choose wisely on the basis of their monetary requirement, credit history, payback capacity, and future plans.
