How to Get a Personal Loan with Bad Credit

Alright, so you missed a rent payment …or four. And you are realizing that your credit score is taking a hit as a result. Let’s say hypothetically, you need a personal loan to launch a new company that’ll make you a multi-millionaire overnight. Lucky for you, there are still several ways to receive a loan.

Try a credit union/family member

You probably did not expect relatives and credit unions to be listed together. Both may serve as a more personal intermediary to receiving money. Credit unions are owned by their members, rather than profit-driven shareholders and may be more likely to lend you money; borrowing money from a family member may incentivize you to pay it back because you do not want to ruin a relationship, and hopefully, they will be more inclined to lend you money in the first place.

Get a cosigner

If you know someone with a strong credit score, they may be able to sign a loan for you. The better the credit score means the less money you will have to pay.

Get a secured loan

You will need to borrow against a previously held asset (property or thing owned by a person). This could be, but is not limited to: your car with an equity car loan; your retirement account with an IRA -Individual Retirement Account- loan.
