Do you not have a lot of money? If so, how do you get credit card companies to work with you, or creditors to consider you for a loan? There are ways in which a person who doesn’t have a lot of money to get a loan and try to build up some sort of credit history. What are you options if you are looking to get a loan, or are trying to work on the terms of a current loan?
What you are going to want to do is to accept that you don’t have a whole lot of leverage in the situation. This means that you are probably going to have to accept a higher interest rate to get a loan. Don’t be shocked if your interest rate is somewhere around 20 percent if your credit is really bad, or you don’t have a great credit history. However, this is better than nothing when trying to build or rebuild your credit.
The truth is that the creditors would rather get their money as opposed to having to write it off as a loss. When a creditor has to write off a loan, it is simply lost money for them. They will be willing to negotiate a new loan term with you, but again, you should be willing to accept a higher interest rate. At the very least you will pay more in interest the longer the loan goes for. However, it is better than being reported to a credit bureau and having your score lowered.
Instead of going right to Visa to get a credit card loan, why not try to go to a credit union and get a Visa through them? Chances are good that you will get a lower interest rate. The only downside is that you are going to start with a lower balance, so it might not be enough to pay off a debt, or to make that purchase that you were hoping to make right away.
When you don’t have a lot of money, it can be hard to get credit card companies to stop calling you, or to stop the collection calls. However, you should realize that you do have rights. Chances are that you have a grace period from the date that your bill is due until the time you will face any actually fees. You also have 30 days before the creditors can actually report your bill as overdue. This means you can disregard these calls as just scare tactics.
Having little money, but a huge debt, can be troubling. Know that you have rights and can still get a loan even if your credit isn’t the greatest. You might pay more for it, and you might not have a lot of available credit, but you can still get a loan. On the other hand, you can still work out payment terms if you are struggling to pay off a loan.
