No, we are not. Willow Loans offers a matching service. We help match you with the right loan provider based upon the information you enter into our form.
Unsecured personal loans are typically repaid by the borrower in monthly installments. The terms and conditions of your loan will be outlined by the lender when the loan is finalized, prior to the funds being released to you. Repayment terms are specific to each lender, and may vary, therefore must be established before you agree to these terms. However, most loans require regular payments that will reduce the balance of the loan with incurring interest charges.
Willow Loans uses a trusted network of loan providers that can offer you a personal loan ranging from $500 to $40,000 dependent on whether you meet the eligibility criteria of the specific lender. The amount that you are able to borrow will be based on a number of factors, including income and employment history. Before a lender decides whether you are a suitable candidate for a personal loan, they will conduct an investigation into your credit history, along with any other information that they believe to be relevant. The retrieval of this information is based on criteria, which may differ from lender to lender.
A personal loan is an unsecured loan that does not require collateral. Because personal loans are unsecured, they may carry higher interest rates, and some lenders rely on credit scores to determine interest rates for this type of loan. Certain laws and regulations regulate borrowing costs, which can vary with different lenders. If approved for a loan, your lender will discuss the rates and terms of your particular loan prior to finalizing the agreement.
We have personal loan providers that can provide loans in all states.
Credit is an important part of the loan approval process, but you can still be approved for a personal loan with bad or no credit. Our lenders consider credit an important issue when applying for a loan, but also take into account other factors as well. Of course, it is easier for a lender to approve a consumer with good or average credit than it is one with credit issues, but bad credit does not necessarily mean that a lender will reject your application. Income and employment status play a major role when a lender evaluates your current financial position. If you have past credit problems, but are working to rebuild your credit, lenders also take this into account when considering you for a loan. Even the most negative credit situations do not necessarily prompt a loan rejection.
As we are solely a loan matching service, we are unable to project exact rates or terms, as these will differ from lender to lender and loan to loan. It is imperative that you obtain this information from your lender prior to agreeing to the terms of the loan, and you are entitled to this information at any point during the loan process.
Once you have been approved for a personal loan, the lender will make contact with a view to completing the final steps of the process. Before receiving a check, all relevant paperwork must be completed, however it is possible to receive the check for your personal loan as early as the following business day.
If you have received one loan and feel that you are in control of your finances, we do not recommend taking out additional loans. Regardless of your financial circumstances, it is always best practice to repay one loan before taking out another one. If you are struggling to cover everyday living expenses and are considering taking out another loan, it is recommended to contact a professional credit counselor who may be able to offer practical, money managing solutions, as taking out another loan may result in further financial difficulty.
This is completely dependent on the discretion of the lender, who will endeavor to work with you to create a repayment plan that is best suited to you. Loan extensions may result in increased rates or additional fees, and the prospect of a loan extension should be discussed with your lender.
Whilst Willow Loans is here to process your loan application any time, day or night, we must adhere to usual business hours, including holidays. As a result of this, it is possible that your loan repayment may be collected a couple of days before its due date, and, similarly, the loan payment that is due to be sent to you could be delayed over the holidays, but will reach your account on the next working business day. It is down to you to take note of the following holidays, as they will have an impact on your loan:
- New Year’s Day
- Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
- Presidents’ Day
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
- Columbus Day
- Veterans’ Day
- Thanksgiving Day
- Christmas Day
Here at Willow Loans, the loan providers we match you with have a set of criteria that must be met before qualifying for a personal loan. If you are unsuccessful in your application, it is possible that you have failed to meet all of the criteria as set out by the lender. As we are a loan matching service and not a lender, if you are turned down by a lender, it is important that you contact them to find out why.
In the event that you are not matched with a lender, there are a few steps that you can take to remedy this:
- Try applying in regular business hours.
- Your bank account may not be set up for direct deposit services, in which case you should converse with your bank, then make contact with the lender again.
- If you have much outstanding debt, the lender may not be prepared to enter into a financial contract with you. In this event, make every effort to pay off the money that you already owe, and this will in turn improve your chances of getting a loan.
Willow Loans understands that not everyone has a checking account, and some lenders will be reluctant to give loans to those who don’t. If you only have a savings account, you can still apply for a loan, as we have a number of lenders in our network who will enter into a financial agreement and grant loans to those who only have a savings account, providing that you have a bank routing number. Just let Willow Loans know upfront on the application form and we will match you to the lender who can best suit your needs.
Even if this is the case, Willow Loans can still find the loan to suit you. We have loan partners, who as long as you can prove that your income is steady and consistent, will regard this just the same as income from employment.
This is not a problem. You can provide alternative identification such as passport or Social Security number.
No, we do not. We are a loan matching service who will put you in touch with the loan provider.
You do not need to send anything to us. As we are only here to match you with a loan provider. We don’t require any personal information.
