Personal Loan is an unsecured loan that is generally used for a personal purpose. This type of loan could be used for paying off debts, going on vacations, buying appliances and latest gadgets, home improvement, unexpected medical expenses, and so forth. The banks calculate the eligibility of the borrower before approving the loan application. A Personal Loan is offered based on the credibility and repaying capacity of the borrower. The funds from a Personal Loan could be used for any type of expense as per the convenience and requirement of the borrower. As a Personal Loan does not require any security or collateral, the rate of interest charged is comparatively higher than other types of loans. Unlike the high rate of interest, the loan tenure is shorter than the other types of secured loans and can be used for any personal need.
