Family, friends, in-laws, a local church or community group are among the first that may come to mind.
The Pros – Little to no qualifying, usually no credit check, and little or no interest charge. You may be able to obtain a loan or even a gift from one of these sources. (well it could happen).
The cons – They may say no, (rejection from family or friends is especially tough) It may be embarrassing, you may be asked “what do you need the money for?” or “what happened that you need a loan?” -or- They simply may not have it available.
If these short term loan options are not what you choose, or are not available, you may be at the right place. Since 2008, we have connected more than 800,000 consumers in real-time, online, with loan sources.
