Most people who urgently need money do not need thousands of euros in most cases. Borrowing a small amount is becoming increasingly popular among consumers, because in most cases you only have to pay little interest on such loans, the term of the loan is short and applying for such a loan is extremely easy.
Almost everyone can borrow an amount of up to USD 1000 at the moment that they do not yet have a negative assessment in the Credit Registration Office. In the case of mini-loans, often no BKR check is done.
The moment you start borrowing more money
An amount up to approximately USD 1000 falls under a ‘small amount’, the moment you start borrowing more money, it no longer falls under a small amount. The duration of a small loan is often about 3 weeks to a maximum of 3 months, so you have to take into account that you have to pay everything back to the lender within a short period.
The term of a loan can in most cases be adjusted in consultation with the relevant lender, for example you can discuss that you would like to keep the loan a little longer. The maximum amount you can borrow with a ‘small loan’ is of course entirely dependent on your personal financial situation.
If a lender considers you suitable to carry a loan
This does not have to be the case. Of course, a lender wants to provide as many loans as possible at the highest possible interest rate, so when you take out a loan, you also have to trust your personal intuition. If you think that your financial situation is too uncertain to bear a certain loan, it is absolutely advisable not to take out that loan, despite the fact that the lender in question considers you suitable for this. In most cases, you no longer need to go to a physical office of the lender to borrow small amounts, as it is customary to apply for loans via the internet these days.
Most lenders will ask you to send some payslips from the past months so that they can assess your current financial situation. This assessment is, of course, not entirely reliable either; after all, in practice your financial situation may have changed completely within a few hours. Many people forget to read the terms and conditions carefully even for small loans, as they state exactly once again how much time you have to pay off the loan, how much interest you have to pay and whether it is possible to pay off early.
Precisely because such loans are often not huge in size
It is often interesting to repay the credit early, of course you must first know whether it is permitted to repay without penalty. More and more people are choosing to borrow a small amount from friends or acquaintances instead of taking out a loan. The big advantage of this is of course that you often have to pay little or no interest.
Many people are ashamed to borrow money from friends, acquaintances or family and therefore decide to just take out a small loan. By making a smart comparison, you can save at least tens to hundreds of euros every month on your small loan. Borrowing a small amount can certainly be very beneficial!
