(Washington, DC) –  The International Monetary Fund (IMF), despite overall progress in its anti-corruption efforts, has not ensured sufficient oversight of its Covid-19 emergency loans, Human Rights Watch and Transparency International said today. As a result, it is hard for members of the public in many countries to track the governments’ Covid-19 spending, to identify potential corruption, or to determine whether the deprivation of basic rights connected to the pandemic is being addressed.

Since March 2020, the IMF has provided about US$108 billion in financial assistance to 85 countries to support their response to the pandemic. Due to the IMF’s improved attention to combating corruption, about half of these loan agreements included specific anti-corruption measures related to Covid-19 spending and procurement. In some cases, the IMF obtained strong transparency commitments that spurred the publication of valuable information. Some governments amended procurements rules to enable publication of the names of beneficial (that is, real) owners of companies awarded contracts. This information is key to preventing conflicts of interest and tax evasion and allowing the public to track who benefits from public contracts. However, weak implementation impeded the potential of this progress.

“The IMF’s call to governments during the pandemic to ‘spend as much as you can but keep the receipts’ showed concern for corruption risks,” said Sarah Saadoun, senior business and human rights researcher at Human Rights Watch. “But this approach will only be effective in addressing rights issues if it ensures that those ‘receipts’ are publicly accessible, comprehensive, and credible.” 

Robust IMF lending is critical for many governments to have sufficient resources to respond to the pandemic by providing adequate and accessible health care as well as addressing its economic impacts. It is equally critical for governments to spend these funds transparently and accountably so they reach those in need.

Human Rights Watch and Transparency International assessed the effectiveness of the IMF’s approach during the pandemic by analyzing how well four governments – Egypt, Nigeria, Cameroon, and Ecuador – carried through on the measures included in their loan agreements. Between January and March 2021, the organizations analyzed documents published by these governments, as well as loan agreements and other documents published by the IMF.

Transparency International also conducted a comprehensive review of anti-corruption measures included in emergency loan agreements prior to July 23, 2020, at which point most of the IMF’s immediate Covid-19 support had been approved. In Nigeria and Cameroon, Human Rights Watch interviewed medical staff and people who lost earnings due to the pandemic. Human Rights Watch, in March 2021, wrote to the finance ministries of each of the four governments and the IMF. Only the IMF responded, which is reflected below.

The IMF’s approach to stemming corruption for its emergency lending relies heavily on public oversight, particularly from civil society groups and the media. To facilitate oversight, the data needs to be accessible and sufficiently detailed to assess and track spending, and conditions need to be in place to ensure that concerns can be raised safely. The IMF also needs to remain actively engaged to ensure robust implementation by governments, including through future surveillance and lending programs.

To its credit, the IMF has increased engagement with civil society groups since the onset of the pandemic, including by initiating workshops and calls with IMF staff. The IMF also met with civil society groups, though typically after loans were already approved.

A View from Four Countries

An in-depth analysis of Egypt, Nigeria, Ecuador, and Cameroon found mixed results in meeting the IMF’s transparency commitments. There remained inconsistencies in the types of measures to which governments committed, their implementation, and the role of the IMF in ensuring compliance. The transparency commitments in the emergency loans spurred all four governments to produce information about their spending and contracts that they would have otherwise not published. However, the amount, accessibility, and quality of the disclosed information varied widely and was inadequate for meaningful oversight for any of the four countries.

The review identified several factors that weakened the effective implementation of commitments:

  • Transparency commitments lack adequate specificity. As a result, the types of information the four governments disclosed, the time period covered, and the level of detail varied widely.
  • Relevant information is hidden, hard to find, and inaccessible. In all four cases, finding published information was difficult. For example, Egypt’s procurement website is not accessible outside the country, even using VPN servers. Cameroon published a list of companies that were awarded government contracts and some beneficial ownership information, but the only link to the document accessible online is on page 47 of an IMF report, not on any government site. And the documents Ecuador published are scattered across three government websites and not necessarily available.
  • Beneficial ownership information is inadequate. In almost all cases, there was not sufficient identifying information about beneficial owners to ensure that people were not illicitly profiting from government contracts. Moreover, governments did not specify how they would provide the information they committed to disclose.
  • Inconsistency in the IMF’s approach to measures and follow-up. The specific measures the IMF required varied widely from one government to another and only in certain cases did the IMF tie compliance to future lending. Significantly, Cameroon and Ecuador only followed through on their initial commitments because the IMF made approval of a second loan request dependent on their doing so. The IMF did not do so for Egypt, despite Egypt’s poor implementation of its commitments.


Good governance, including anti-corruption efforts, should be at the heart of rebuilding resilient and inclusive economies, particularly as governments are looking to bolster spending on health, social protection, and other fundamental rights, while reducing inefficiencies in spending and raising revenues. Corruption alone costs governments as much as $1 trillion in lost tax revenues.

To build on its progress and ensure an effective approach to anti-corruption, the IMF should:

  • Ensure that governments receiving the money make specific, concrete, and time-bound commitments as part of the loan agreements.
  • Work with governments to clarify and detail best practices for fulfilling transparency commitments, including those related to user access, and beneficial ownership information.
  • Host a database of relevant documents to standardize the format and facilitate universal access. Pursue a consistent approach to assessing government implementation and linking findings to surveillance and lending transparency.  
  • Demonstrate how its spending secures basic rights for all without discrimination, including the right to health and to an adequate standard of living. It should consult with civil society as part of its assessment and publish the results.
  • Publicly report on the level of implementation of the transparency/anti-corruption commitments that governments made as part of the loan agreements.
  • Revise its 2011 policy on emergency assistance or separately develop guidelines for addressing corruption risks in crisis situations.
  • Ensure that governments credibly carry out commitments to conduct and publish audits in a timely manner.

“The IMF has made progress ensuring greater transparency in its loan agreements, but this needs to go much further,” said M. Emilia Berazategui, Global Advocacy Lead at Transparency International. “Successful anti-corruption outcomes take time and perseverance. If the IMF wants to ensure that the most vulnerable communities receive the support and resources they are promised, it is critical that they continue to press governments to prioritize integrity and transparency. The Covid-19 pandemic has made clear that this is a matter of life and death.”

For additional information on each of the four governments’ implementation of anti-corruption measures in their respective loan agreements and on the need for greater IMF oversight of emergency loans, please see below.

IMF’s Covid-19 Emergency Loans

The IMF initially pledged to use its $1 trillion lending capacity to help countries cope with the most serious health and economic crisis in recent history. It has approved only 10 percent of this amount, in part due to technical restrictions as well as many countries’ mounting debt. Recent developments in the G20 and G7 are likely to help boost countries’ reserves, and the G7 has specifically pledged to “work with the IMF to make progress on enhancing transparency and accountability.” Moreover, the $100 billion the IMF has spent thus far has disproportionately targeted just a few countries. According to a Transparency International analysis, 80 percent went to 10 countries, including Egypt and Nigeria, as of July 23, 2020, at which point the majority of these loan agreements had already been approved.

The Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on human rights has made many people acutely dependent on IMF funds and has also increased the risk of funds being lost to corruption or captured by elites. Powerful actors may use the crisis for their own benefit because of dramatic increases in spending and possible pandemic-related interference with oversight mechanisms.

Those risks are exacerbated because the IMF’s emergency loans are single, up-front payments deposited into governments’ central accounts, limiting the IMF’s ability to ensure oversight. To address this, the IMF took a back-end approach by retroactively assessing the use of funds, which IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva described as asking governments to “keep the receipts.”

In practice, the IMF’s expectations of governments have varied. Roughly half of all emergency loan agreements included specific measures related to governments publishing information on Covid-19 spending and procurement, as well as conducting audits. The specifics of these commitments also varied. Many governments pledged to publish procurement contracts and the beneficial owners of companies awarded contracts – a significant advance in the IMF’s approach to governance. Some governments pledged to conduct independent audits of crisis-related spending and publish the results, while others said they would rely on state agencies.

In a March 24 letter to Human Rights Watch, the IMF said it is monitoring the implementation of transparency commitments and that “analysis of this implementation has been and will continue to be published in IMF staff reports for these countries.” It also noted that “capacity to implement governance measures varies across countries” and that anti-corruption measures in emergency loans, as well as other measures to address governance vulnerabilities, are included in subsequent loans.


Even before the pandemic, IMF-driven economic reforms had made it harder for the 32 million Egyptians living under the poverty line – one-third of the country – to make ends meet. The principal social protection program, Takaful wa Karama (Dignity and Solidarity), already stretched thin, reached only 15 million people even after it was expanded to soften the blow of the pandemic’s devastating economic impact. Chronic underfunding of health services made Egypt ill-prepared for the pandemic, a problem authorities sought to obscure by detaining healthcare workers who publicly disclosed key deficiencies such as lack of personal protective equipment.

To address these problems, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in March 2020 announced a 100 billion Egyptian pound (US$6.4 billion) package, including 40 billion pounds ($2.3 billion) in health spending. The IMF approved two loans to help finance this response: a $2.77 billion Rapid Credit Facility (RCF) on May 11, and, on June 26, a 12-month Stand-By Arrangement (SBA) worth $5.2 billion.

While the dire need for these resources is clear, in recent years the Egyptian government has undermined the independence of its anti-corruption institutions and weakened the role of the judiciary, significantly exacerbating corruption risks. For example, in 2015, the president amended the law to grant himself the authority to fire Hesham Geneina, the head of the Central Auditing Agency, the country’s main anti-corruption institution, after Geneina reported that corruption had cost the country $76 billion over three years. Authorities also prosecuted Geneina for his statements and a court handed down a one-year suspended sentence in 2016.

As part of its RCF agreement, the Egyptian government committed to publish all Covid-19-related spending; publish procurement plans and awarded contracts, including the names and beneficial ownership information of companies awarded contracts; and to conduct an audit, including ex-post validation of delivery and publish the results. The subsequent SBA includes anti-corruption requirements that go beyond Covid-19 spending.

In a signal of the Egyptian authorities’ difficult relationship with transparency, they did not authorize the IMF to publish the loan agreements until several months after signing them. In most cases they are published within days of approval, recognizing that the terms they include are indispensable for public oversight. The Egyptian government has published only sparse information on Covid-19 spending on the Finance Ministry’s website. This includes a broad overview of 81.5 billion Egyptian pounds ($5 billion) worth of measures the government took in response to Covid-19; a similar document totaling 110 billion pounds ($7 billion) is available as an Annex in an IMF document.

The government published several procurement documents, which cover $280 million spent on Covid-19 tests, medical supplies, and other Covid-19-related materials and include only the names of companies awarded contracts, the contract amount, and the entity receiving the goods, which, for the vast majority of contracts, is the Health Ministry. Some of these documents explicitly only cover contracts awarded prior to October, and the total amount covered is far less than the $2.3 billion allocated to health spending. Human Rights Watch and Transparency International have not been able to find published contracts or beneficial ownership information, despite the government’s commitment in the emergency loan agreement to publish this information. In its letter, the IMF said authorities had “amended the procurement law’s executive regulation with the view to publish information on beneficial ownership for awarded contracts on the procurement portal.”

In October, Human Rights Watch found that the government had at some point earlier in the year blocked access to a website ( for publishing public tenders available to people outside of Egypt. Procurement notices could provide valuable information regarding the nature of the contracts awarded to companies listed in other documents.

Beyond the lack of transparency, the Egyptian authorities’ relentless, nationwide repression and reprisals against perceived government critics makes it unsafe for journalists, civil society organizations, or others to expose spending irregularities, report on corruption allegations, or question military spending and finances.


In April 2020, Nigeria received US$3.4 billion in emergency financial assistance from the IMF to support its Covid-19 response. Two months later, Nigeria’s federal government announced a 2.3 trillion Naira ($6 billion) stimulus.

But according to official figures, many of Nigeria’s poorest citizens have yet to see the benefit of this assistance. Nationwide surveys by Nigeria’s National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) found that by July 16, just 12.5 percent of the poorest quintile of respondents had received some form of food assistance since the pandemic began. By August, the NBS found that 32 percent of respondents nationwide were experiencing severe food insecurity, compared with 14 percent in the same period in 2018.

Human Rights Watch and Justice and Empowerment Initiatives, a Nigerian nongovernmental organization, interviewed urban families experiencing poverty in Lagos State between March and December. They said that they had survived the impact of the pandemic on their jobs and livelihoods by skipping meals, incurring debt, and relying on handouts from neighbors and local groups. “We heard about all the money the government was supposed to be getting for Covid-19 – billions of Naira – and the government talked about the food they were distributing, but most of the communities never got any,” said one community health worker.

Against these difficult conditions, civil society groups have highlighted how crucial it is to keep governance safeguards from slipping through the cracks, leaving life-saving resources at risk of theft or malfeasance. Even before the Covid-19 crisis, 20 percent of people in the country had to pay a bribe in order to access public clinics and health centers.

In its request for IMF assistance, the Nigerian government committed to several transparency and governance measures, including publishing monthly reports on its Covid-19 spending in its transparency portal,; publishing procurement plans and notices for all emergency-response activities, including the names of awarded companies and beneficial owners; and conducting an independent audit of crisis-mitigation spending and related procurement processes. Despite civil society’s call for the inclusion of a specific commitment in the loan linked to ensuring the set-up of safe reporting mechanisms for whistleblowers, this was not taken into account.

In a positive step, the federal government established a publicly accessible procurement register related to emergency Covid-19 processes. The register is a valuable public resource on Covid-19 spending and includes information on the stated purpose of a contract, amount paid, company name of the award winner, duration, source of funding, and items procured. In August, President Muhammadu Buhari signed the reenacted Companies Allied and Matters Act into law, which among other things, provides a legal framework for the establishment of a federal beneficial ownership registry. Companies are required to disclose this information to Nigerian Companies Register by March 31, 2021. Reports have emerged of anti-corruption agencies proactively investigating allegations of procurement fraud and misuse of Covid-19 funds. In addition, a Covid-19 response data hub has been established, which includes a resource and donations tracker updated by the Ministry of Finance.

Despite signs of progress, gaps in the implementation of transparency commitments agreed to in the June 2020 loan remain. A review of select completed procurement processes worth over $10,000, as well as an open data platform and Nigeria’s corporate registry, found no beneficial ownership information for awarded companies or contract documentation as of March 5, 2021. An IMF Article IV report highlighted this weakness and that users have found it difficult to access the expenditure information that is being published. Several links under the Covid-19 reports tab on, including a link to the Covid-19 Comprehensive Financial Report, appear broken. The Nigerian government did not respond to a letter, but the IMF blamed “challenges to the Internet Service Provider” and said the Nigerian authorities are currently working to resolve them. The IMF also said that while authorities are “increasingly providing the needed information,” it understands some procurement requirements “were relaxed” due to Covid-19 and “it is not clear when the additional information will be made public.”

In October 2020, the government announced it would release a first interim audit report of its Covid-19 spending. This report was never released to the public, despite an official from the Auditor-General’s office indicating the report was already submitted to the National Assembly in September 2020. An interim report was produced by January 15, 2021; however, this report does not appear to be publicly available. In its letter, the IMF noted that the Auditor-General’s office commissioned an audit but the “timeline for final publication is not yet clear.”


The IMF approved an emergency loan of US$643 million on May 1, 2020, providing Ecuador a much-needed source of revenue to combat the immense financial and human costs of the pandemic. In October, the IMF approved a $6.5 billion 27-month program under the Extended Fund Facility (EFF) to support the stabilization of the economy, expand social protections, and strengthen domestic institutions.

As part of the emergency loan, Ecuador committed to publish Covid-19 spending reports; Covid-19 public procurement contracts, as well as the names and beneficial ownership of companies awarded contracts; validate delivery of products and services; conduct a Covid-19 specific audit and publish the results. Since the government had yet to publish beneficial ownership information when it requested an EFF, the IMF made approval of that loan contingent on Ecuador revising its procurement law to enable it to collect and publish this information.

In September, the government adopted a resolution requiring all public contractors and subcontractors to provide beneficial ownership information and mandating authorities to publish the information on an unspecified website. It further mandated that bank accounts and their movements linked to beneficial owners of entities engaged in public procurement laws would no longer have the same secrecy protections as those of ordinary entities. To ensure the sustainability of the requirements, it is important that they become part of the national Public Procurement Law.

To assess the implementation of this law, Transparency International analyzed procurement contracts in the public procurement website with a total value of $500,000. Some of these contracts, all of which were valued at over $10,000, were related to Covid-19 and were awarded within a six-month period after the emergency loan; others were unrelated to Covid-19 and were awarded after the EFF was approved in October.

While the public procurement website contains a wealth of valuable information, the analysis found some gaps. Most awarded contracts were available in the register, making Ecuador the only government of the four analyzed to publish at least some contracts. However, some were absent; for example, in one set of procurements grouped in an emergency resolution, only 17 of the 32 contracts had been uploaded.

Only one procurement process contained a section dedicated to beneficial ownership – which was labeled “optional” and left blank. A separate database did include beneficial ownership for companies awarded contracts, but getting this information required cross-checking multiple databases, hindering ease of access. In addition, in some cases, the listed beneficial owner was another corporate entity, and in some cases, companies were not registered in the system at all.  

In December, the IMF released its first review of the EFF. It stressed the importance of transparency for Covid-19 funding and praised Ecuador’s amendments to the national anti-corruption framework as well as the examination by the Comptroller General’s Office of more than 300 Covid-19-related procurement processes. However, it did not note the missing contracts, problems with beneficial ownership information, or the lack of a consolidated website for procurement-related information.

In its letter to Human Rights Watch, the IMF praised Ecuador’s “significant progress towards the fulfillment of commitments on procurement transparency,” including a “procurement website centralizes information providing access to relevant procurement documents, including contracts.” However, it acknowledged that “while information on beneficial ownership of awarded companies and ex-post validation is technically available, it is not yet easily and consistently accessible to the public in the procurement website.”


Cameroon’s health sector is among the most underfunded in Africa. Two-thirds of total spending on health in the country comes from people seeking treatment – double the regional average – and studies have shown that the majority of families do not seek health care because costs are too high. The country also lacks a social safety net, and nine out of ten workers are employed in the informal economy.

The Covid-19 pandemic brought fresh urgency to increasing funding for healthcare centers and supporting people who lost earnings. In April 2020, the health minister announced a 58 billion XAF (US$105 million) response plan, and on May 4, the IMF approved a $256 million emergency loan to help finance it. In October, the IMF approved a second $156 million loan to finance a more robust $825 million three-year package to support the country’s health system and help businesses and households affected by the pandemic.

As part of the May loan, the Cameroonian government pledged to use the funds transparently and committed to issuing semiannual reports on Covid-19 spending; commission an independent audit; and publish “documents related to results of public procurement and [beneficial ownership information] of companies awarded contracts.”

From the beginning, virtually no public information was provided regarding the government’s Covid-19 spending. Healthcare centers made urgent appeals for support from an emergency health fund into which they have been paying 10 percent of their revenues since 1993, according to medical staff whom Human Rights Watch interviewed from various regions in April and May, but they said they had received no support. The government does not publish any information about the fund and did not respond to a Human Rights Watch letter regarding it. The president established a second solidarity fund and appealed to private companies and citizens to contribute, but that fund was also not transparent.

In interviews with Human Rights Watch, medical staff reported shortages in basic hospital goods, including thermometers, disinfectants, and medicines, as well as ventilators and oxygen, and protective gear for doctors and nurses, such as masks, gloves, and glasses. One doctor said his hospital only received 12 masks, 20 boxes of gloves, and 4 full body gowns for its 50 employees until his district’s 10 medical facilities finally received a combined total of 10 million CFA ($17,000) in August.

People who lost jobs or wages due to the pandemic told Human Rights Watch that they received little or nothing to stave off hunger. One woman, who works as a secretary at a hotel in Douala and now earns one-third her usual salary, reported in December that she was having trouble paying for her children’s food, school fees, and other costs, stating, “The state hasn’t helped us.” Another woman, an events manager at a hotel whose salary was cut, said she had to ask her brother to take care of her two children because she could no longer afford to do so. Both women worked at hotels that the government had requisitioned between March and May to house people who may have been exposed to Covid-19.

Based on over a dozen interviews Human Rights Watch conducted, the hotels received only very partial or no compensation for their costs, adding financial strain at a time when the industry was already struggling with pandemic-related restrictions leading to layoffs and steep wage cuts. The government has not published any information regarding its contracts with or reimbursements to such hotels.

After public pressure, the Health Ministry, citing the “urgency of transparency,” published a two-page statement on July 29 about how it spent about 22 billion FCA ($40 million), which it said was its total expenditure to respond to Covid-19 in the preceding five months. It included only vague categories that provide no real possibility for the public to verify. In its letter, the IMF said that the Ministry of Finance is preparing a report on its Covid-19 spending, which it expects the government will share “in the near term.”

Before the IMF approved a second emergency loan, it required the government to change its rules to enable it to publish beneficial ownership information of companies awarded contracts, and to publish “the backlog of all Covid-19 related contracts awarded since May 4, including the beneficial ownership.” In a positive step, in October the government issued a circular requiring companies to include beneficial ownership information in their contract bids and mandating adding the information to a national register once a contract is awarded.

In practice, however, the government never uploaded this information into a central database. Instead, it produced a list of the names of companies awarded contracts, beneficial owners, and the contract amount, but there are no links to that document on any government website. The only link appears to be on page 47 of an IMF loan agreement. In addition, for nearly all companies, only one beneficial owner is listed, making it highly unlikely that the information is complete.

The government has not published the contracts themselves, and the IMF revised – it says “clarified” – the terms of the November loan agreement to no longer require the government to do so. With regard to the commitment to conduct an independent audit, the state agency, Contrôle supérieur de l’État du Cameroun (CONSUPE), has reportedly begun an audit and the finance minister has called for tenders for an independent audit.

No matter what you do, almost everyone is going to run into a financial emergency at some point. Whether it’s an unexpected visit to the hospital, a broken-down car, or the loss of a job putting a strain on your budget, there will come a time when you need help making ends meet.

If you don’t have savings to cover your costs, you might have to borrow money. One of the most popular ways to do this is with a personal loan. But if you have bad credit, this can be difficult, as many lenders refuse to offer loans to people who don’t have good credit.

That doesn’t mean that you have no options. It just means that you’ll need to consider emergency loans designed for those with bad credit.

The Best Emergency Loans For Bad Credit: Overview

Below is a quick look at some of the best places to search for an emergency loan if you have bad credit. We’ll discuss each one further in the article.

Lender Best For APR Terms
Monevo Quick comparison shopping 1.99% – 35.99% 3 to 144 months
LendingClub Borrowing from regular people 10.68% – 35.89% 36 or 60 months
Prosper Small amounts 7.95% – 35.99% 36 or 60 months
Fiona Comparison shopping Varies Varies
Upstart People with good job or educational histories 8.69% – 35.99% 36 or 60 months

Best Personal Lenders for Bad Credit

If you’re facing a financial emergency and need to borrow money, there are many lenders that can help you. Here are a few of our favorites.


Monevo makes it easy to search and compare personal loans online. With loans from $500 to $100,000, you’re in a position to quickly get the money you need to deal with any emergency that comes your way.

By sharing a few personal details — such as your name, address, and employment information — Monevo can provide a personalized interest rate. Furthermore, this process does not affect your credit score. That allows you to move forward with confidence.

When facing an emergency, you don’t have an abundance of time to search online and/or call lenders. Monevo eliminates the legwork by allowing you to compare multiple options in short order.


LendingClub is a peer-to-peer lending site that helps people borrow up to $40,000 at APRs of 10.68% – 35.89% for anything from refinancing credit cards to paying for a hospital bill.

When you apply for a loan through LendingClub, you’ll outline both why you need to borrow money and how much you need. Then, LendingClub gives you a risk score based on your credit. Investors view your loan details and your risk score – then, willing investors pledge money to your loan.

When investors fully fund your loan, you’ll get the money and can use it to cover your financial emergency. When you pay your bill each month, LendingClub distributes it to the investors based on how much they invested in your loan.

A drawback of LendingClub is that it’s somewhat less flexible than other personal loans. The only available repayment terms are three and five years, which makes it harder to adjust your monthly payment.

LendingClub recommends a minimum credit score of 600. offers personal loans between $2,000 and $40,000, making it a great choice for needs both small and large. Rates range from 7.95% – 35.99% APR and the loans come with origination fees ranging from 2.41% to 5%.

You can easily get an interest rate quote from the company’s website without impacting your credit. Loan terms are three or five years, giving you some chance to determine your monthly payment. offers funding in as little as three days, and keeps fees to a minimum. For example, the company doesn’t charge an early repayment fee if you want to pay down your balance ahead of schedule.

Prosper recommends a minimum credit score of 640 but offers loans to those with lower scores.


Fiona isn’t a lender itself. Instead, it is a service that lets you compare multiple offers from top personal lenders.

What’s great about Fiona is that it can match you with lenders that meet incredibly specific needs. Do you want to borrow $100,000 – an amount that most lenders won’t be willing to lend? Fiona can help you find lenders who lend large amounts. Do you have poor credit? Fiona has a network of lenders that specialize in lending to people with less than ideal credit histories.

Best of all, Fiona doesn’t charge a fee for its services, so you can compare loan options for free. Credit score requirements and fees charged by lenders that Fiona works with vary.

The primary drawback of Fiona is that the company only refers you to lenders in its network. There might be other options out there that can give you a better deal, so it shouldn’t be a one-stop-shop for your lender comparison.


Upstart is a unique personal lender that looks at more than just your credit when considering loan applications. This makes it a great choice for people who have bad credit and need an emergency loan.

On top of looking at your credit, Upstart considers things like your employment and educational history. If you studied an in-demand field or have a solid job history, you might be able to qualify for loans you’d have trouble getting based on your credit score alone.

Rates range from 8.69% to 36.99% and loans can get approved and funded in as little as a day. Loan amounts range from $1,000 to $50,000, though some states have higher minimums.

The minimum credit score is 620, though Upstart can also approve loans for people with no credit score.

How We Came Up with This List

When choosing the best lenders for emergency loans for people with bad credit, we look for lenders that offer the best possible rates and fees while maintaining flexibility in repayment terms and the amount you can borrow.

Why does this matter?

  • Fees and interest rates directly influence the cost of the loan.
  • Repayment terms determine the monthly cost of the loan and how long it takes to repay.

People with bad credit typically have to accept loans that have higher fees and rates than people with good credit. Make sure you fully understand the fees, interest rates, and repayment terms of any loan you take out.

What is a Personal Loan?

A personal loan is a highly flexible type of loan offered by many banks and specialized lenders.

Unlike mortgages or auto loans, which are designed for specific purposes, you can use the money you borrow with a personal loan for almost anything. Personal loans are great for consolidating debt, paying a car repair bill, or funding a project.

Beyond their flexibility, personal loans are useful because they tend to offer reasonable interest rates. Where credit cards often charge double-digit interest rates, many lenders offer low rates on personal loans to people with good credit histories. This makes them a good way to borrow money at a low cost.

Many personal lenders also offer secured personal loans. These loans require some form of collateral, often a CD at the lending bank, but are easier to qualify for and charge even lower interest rates than the typical unsecured personal loan.

Why are Personal Loans Good for Emergencies?

Personal loans are good for emergencies for a variety of reasons.

One is that there are many banks and lenders that offer them. You can easily find half a dozen or more lenders to work with. This gives you the opportunity to compare multiple lenders and find the best deal for your situation.

Another is their customizability. Typically lenders will let you borrow anywhere from a few thousand to tens of thousands of dollars. You can also choose repayment terms ranging from two to five years. Some lenders, of course, break this mold, letting you borrow up to $100,000 or extend your repayment out to seven years or longer.

This customizability is useful because it makes it easy for you to set your monthly payment at an amount that falls within your budget.

How Do I Get an Emergency Loan with Bad Credit?

Whether you have good or bad credit, the first step to get a loan is to choose a lender and submit an application.

If you have bad credit, you should think about your odds of getting approval from each lender before you apply. Some lenders tend to target customers who have strong credit scores while others are more open to working with people with poor credit.

Also, consider the type of loan you’re applying for. If you have bad credit, a secured loan can be much easier to qualify for. The drawback is that secured loans require collateral, so you need to be able to provide backing for your loan, such as a bank account or a car. If you’re planning to apply for a secured loan, you’ll need to choose a lender that offers secured loans.

When you apply, you’ll have to provide some basic personal information, like your address and Social Security number. You’ll also want to have financial records ready since your lender might scrutinize your application more closely than other applications.

If you’re comfortable doing so, offering a written explanation of the reason you’re applying for a loan could help. A lender might be more willing to work with someone if they understand that you need help repairing a car so you can keep going to work compared to someone borrowing money to go on vacation. If you can show that your need for a loan is a one-time thing and not a pattern of financial irresponsibility, it could help.

The Most Important Things to Know About Emergency Loans for Bad Credit

The most important thing to know about emergency loans for bad credit is that you should avoid alternative and non-traditional lenders, like payday lenders, at all costs. Payday lenders charge incredibly high fees and interest rates, with effective rates often exceeding 100% or more.

If you get a loan from a payday lender, it’s easy to fall into a cycle of debt that you can’t escape. You should always work with more traditional lenders.

Also, keep in mind that even if a lender encourages you to apply for a loan or offers you a preapproval, you aren’t guaranteed to get a loan. Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket and bank on a single lender. Consider multiple options so you’ll have a backup plan if one application gets denied.

A common feature of loans for people with poor credit is a variable interest rate. These rates are often lower than fixed rates, at least to start with, which can make them a tempting way to try to save money. However, if rates rise, your monthly payment rises, possibly too high for you to afford. Picking a fixed interest rate might be more costly at first, but it provides security and peace of mind because you’ll know that your payment won’t change.

Finally, keep in mind that you can usually shop around without impacting your credit. Lenders can prequalify you for a loan and give you an estimate of the interest rate and fees that they’ll charge. Comparing multiple offers to find the cheapest one can save you a good amount of money.

How to Choose an Emergency Loan

When you’re choosing an emergency loan, you have to think about a number of things.

Because you’re experiencing a financial emergency, one of the most important things to think about is how long it takes the lender to distribute the money. Some lenders specialize in disbursing funds quickly while others can take weeks to approve your application and put the money in your account.

In an emergency, you want access to the funds as quickly as possible, which rules out slow lenders.

Beyond the speed of borrowing money, you should think about the loan amounts you can choose from. Lenders have different minimum and maximum loan amounts and you want to choose one that will let you borrow as close to the exact amount that you need as possible. Borrowing too little to cover your expenses doesn’t make sense and borrowing more than you need means paying more interest and fees.

Also, keep in mind the term options. Each lender has different term options, though terms ranging from three to seven years are common. Shorter terms mean higher monthly payments but a cheaper loan overall. Longer terms reduce your monthly payments but make the loan more expensive in the long run. You should find a lender that lets you choose a term that strikes a balance between monthly affordability and overall loan cost.

Emergency Loan FAQs

This varies from lender to lender. Most emergency loans are personal loans, which are flexible and can be used for almost anything. You can use them to pay medical bills, repair a vehicle, or cover living expenses. Some lenders add additional restrictions on the use of the money, so you should speak to your lender to find out about any restrictions they have.

Yes, it’s possible to get a loan if you’re unemployed, but it makes it much more difficult. Lenders want to see that you have a way to repay any loan you receive, so most will demand proof of income. If you’re unemployed but have another source of income, you might be able to borrow money. If you have no source of income, you might be able to get a loan by showing you have the assets to repay the loan, especially if you use some of those assets as collateral for a secured loan. If you have no source of income or assets to repay a loan, you’ll have trouble getting a loan.

There are risks when you get any kind of loan but bad credit loans can be riskier than a typical loan. This is primarily because bad credit loans charge more fees and higher interest rates than loans for those with good credit. If you fall behind on your payments, you could wind up racking up huge interest charges and penalty fees, putting you even deeper into debt and damaging your credit further.

Bottom Line

Just because you have bad credit doesn’t mean you can’t get an emergency loan. However, it does mean that you’ll likely have to pay more for the loan and your choice of lender will be more restricted. Still, it’s worth taking the time to compare a few different lenders to try to find the best deal.

Once you get past your financial emergency, take steps to build an emergency fund and improve your credit to avoid finding yourself in a similar situation in the future.

No matter how much you plan for financial expenditures and run a budget-friendly analysis of all provisions, unforeseen circumstances can always hit you up, leaving you puzzled as to how to come out of the quagmire as soon as possible.

Here is when emergency loans come into play. An emergency loan is an immediate transfer of cash within a day or two to help you get through adverse situations. Like other loans, it comes with its interest rates and other terms and conditions. But, what if you are already suffering from bad credit?

The process of borrowing a personal loan gets difficult when you have the added complication of bad credit. History of not paying off loans on time or unstable financial conditions that seem too risky can make this process a lot arduous than it already is.

But, do not worry. We have compiled some convenient loan-lending companies that offer low-interest rates, convenient user policies, immediate cash transfer facilities, and other commodities that help you in time of need despite a history of bad credit. So, let us dig into the list.

List of the Best Emergency Loan Lending Portals for People With Bad Credit [Review]:

Note: By calling these platforms “loan-lending,” we are not inferring these websites will directly lend you money. They just work to connect to you many lenders online in their network.

#1. MoneyMutual


When it comes to helping consumers in dire need of emergency loans, MoneyMutual is the first one to come to mind. With several hundreds of consumers already making the most out of its services, it stands out in the list of top lender websites.

You can apply for a loan online in about five minutes and find your suitable match after skimming through the criteria. The online loan marketplace makes sure you come across a suitable lender, keeping your preferences in mind, and get a loan approved as soon as possible. You can apply for all kinds of loans, including payday, installments, and even bad credit loans.

60 short-term lenders are there, with complete disclosure to their terms and conditions, to lend you a decent amount of money after you fulfill the criteria of being 18 years old or more, earning at least $800 a month, and having a checking account. It is a convenient online platform for you to take care of the emergency financial crises that come your way.

Talking about security, the site is well protected by Norton encryption, and the customer reviews are legitimate. However, after you find a loan suitable and want to get further details about it, that is when MoneyMutual’s job is done, so no security and protection of the loan issues are provided after then.

MoneyMutual makes sure you can safely request a loan amount in the confines of your home rather than standing in a queue and waiting for hours. After all, this is a requisite for an emergency loan.

Fees and Interest Rates

The estimated APR varies from 5.99 to 24.99%. MoneyMutual demands no origination fee for applying for a loan and plays the role of a middleman in the loan approval process by connecting borrowers to lenders online.

Since the website only plays the role of bridging the gap between borrowers and lenders, once you qualify for and select a loan, it steps away and allows you to negotiate with the lender directly.

The lender has its own terms and conditions, including the interest rates, which can be discussed with them directly. The loan amount that can be lent ranges from $5,000 to $35,000. Interest rates, as stated previously, can differ depending on the lender, but that of payday loans can be considerably high, ranging from 200% to 1300%.

Loan Limits and Terms

With 60 lenders, MoneyMutual can connect you to people who can provide immediate money ranging from $5,000 to as high as $35,000. Smaller loans, like those of $300-$500, can also be applied for and are fairly common than higher ones.

Since MoneyMutual is a middleman and helps connect consumers to potential lenders, it does not have a say in terms and conditions of the loan-taking process. These terms depend on the lenders and can be directly discussed with them. Remember to read everything thoroughly before signing up for the loan to prevent misinformation regarding the policies and procedures.

The three kinds of loans MoneyMutual has to offer to you are payday loans, cash advances, and bad credit loans. Payday loans are easiest to get with low qualification criteria; however, they usually have high interest rates.

A cash advance allows you to get a loan in cash other than that of your bank account and gives you the option of paying it back by your next paycheck or in installments. Bad credit loans are also provided if you qualify for the bare minimum criteria. So, MoneyMutual can be your go-to loan website anytime.


  • Quick application process
  • Various types of loans
  • A secure, encrypted website
  • Smaller loans (as little as $300) and larger loans (up to $35,000) available


  • Must earn at least $800 a month to qualify

#2. Bad Credit Loans


Bad Credit Loans is another free, online loan-lending website that does not provide the loan itself but connects borrowers to lenders online. If the site is not able to find an appropriate match for you, it refers to other lenders so you can get the loan as soon as possible.

As the name indicates, it also caters to and offers loans to people having a bad credit history. Other than connecting people for loans, Bad Credit Loans also takes pride in being part of different charity programs and other events.

Additional information on how to take out loans, how to spend your income carefully to prevent future debt, and how to pay the loan as quickly and efficiently as possible is also available.

Keeping in mind how financial crises can arise out of nowhere, Bad Credit Loans connects you to lenders quickly so you can come across suitable personal loans for yourself in a short period.

Completing the online form process is fast, taking about five minutes. Then, all you have to do is go to their official website, fill out your personal information, account details, and other credentials, and you are good to go.

Fees and Interest Rates

Bad Credit Loans is suitable for small loans, and the APR ranges from 5.99 to 35.99%. However, as the website serves the purpose of connecting borrowers to lenders, the interest rates vary.

Applying for loans on the site itself is a free procedure and does not require any fee. Getting a loan is becoming easier with each passing year as technology progresses. People with bad credit are still hesitant in getting their loans approved but not on this site.

It is specifically made for people who suffer from bad credit history and are not able to arrange emergency money quickly. The site does not promise any definite terms and conditions since it depends on your credit history and the lender’s conditions, but it helps the process get easier.

You are connected to lenders with requirements that match your profile and need so you can directly contact them for further details regarding the interest rates and simultaneous conditions that come with the approval.

Loan Limits and Terms

With Bad Credit Loans, you can come across lenders who can offer money ranging from $500 to $5,000. Loan terms range from three months to 36 months, according to the lender.

All they require is the basic eligibility criteria that lender portals need, which is an age of 18 years, a verified source of income from which you can pay back the loan, legal citizenship of the United States, and a checking account in your name.

After you are done providing the details, here is when the site’s job is done, and lenders come popping in. Each one of them has its own set of loan amounts and related conditions you can think over and decide if it suits you. Otherwise, you can turn it down and continue looking for other offers.

#3. CashUSA


If you are looking for a safe and secure website to register for emergency loans, CashUSA is the one for you. It has helped numerous customers find the loan they need in an industry-standard encrypted system.

CashUSA is one of America’s most reliable sources to get emergency loans for any financial crises that come your way. Many state and tribal lenders make sure the loan approval system is fast and reliable and caters to you efficiently. However, the tribal lenders may have higher interest rates and are not subject to the state’s laws.

All you have to do is visit their official website and fill out an online form that takes a few minutes. Then, when your loan request gets approved by a lender, the funds can be transferred to you quickly, even the next business day.

CashUSA does not provide loans itself; instead, they connect you to suitable lenders. As different lenders have a different set of requirements, the website will connect you to the ones that match your requisites and information. Not only does the site connect you to people who lend loans, but it also provides all of the required information to make an informed decision.

Being an online portal with efficient and effortless procedures and navigation, there is no doubt as to why this site is so popular.

Fees and Interest Rates

As the site functions as a middleman, linking borrowers with lenders, it does not interfere with the loan fee and interest rates. The rates depend on the lender; however, the website is free. You can register for loans on the site without having to pay a hefty amount of cash.

Along with the free application process, you do not have to worry about skimming through lenders and sending separate loan requests to each one of them, since CashUSA does the job for you. Your loan request is sent to lenders that follow your requirements and whose terms match yours and eventually help you connect with them.

After you receive an offer from a lender, you can go through the terms and conditions and see if they suit you. If yes, you are good to go, but if no, then you can decline the offer and continue to look for more.

Loan Limits and Terms

They also have set the same basic eligibility criteria for you to apply for a loan. It includes being at least 18 years old, having a checking account, earning at least $1,000 per month after the deduction of taxes, being a citizen of the United States, or being a permanent resident.

You can request loans up to $10,000. The website is different from other loan portals because you can apply for smaller loans that are not usually provided on other similar platforms.

#4. Personal Loans


Personal Loans is yet another reputable platform on our list that links the lenders with the borrowers. With personal loans, you can get $1,000 – $35,000 lent to you even if you have a 600 FICO score.

This Utah-based company has been in business for quite a long now, and over the course of time, it has earned the trust of many potential customers that have a lot of good to say about it. The reason for this is that no matter what a company promises to deliver, it is hard to believe unless and until customers’ reviews back it.

No matter what you need a loan for, be it the renovation of your house or consolidation of debt, Personal Loans will have something appropriate to entertain you with. It all starts with an easy-to-fill form that will not require you to leave the comfort of your home. Additionally, the smooth navigation on their website makes the whole experience even more seamless.

Once you have provided your information, Personal Loans start working on it by circulating it among the network of its lenders. After a lender approves your request, you are redirected to their website/page to review their terms and conditions in detail. Remember, this part requires your keen attention the most.

As soon as things get finalized by you and the lender, the funds are transferred straight into your bank account within one business day.

Personal Loans will never run out of options to help you out. For example, if you are unable to find a lender there, the platform might connect you to other external trustworthy lenders by showing different ads.

Last but not least, with Personal Loans, rest assured your personal information is in safe hands, as it keeps it out of reach of unauthorized access.

Fees and Interest Rates

Personal Loans will not charge you a penny for connecting you to a lender. They provide this assistance free of cost to the borrowers. Also, the platform does not interfere with your contract with your lender. You will be on your own once you have been connected to the lender.

APR for this one also remains the same at 5.99% to 59.99%. So, no matter if the market rates fluctuate, you will not have to pay more interest rates than what was initially decided, which lies within the previously mentioned range.

Loan Limits and Terms

From $1,000 to $35,000, you can borrow as much as you require, which you can pay over the course of up to 72 months. However, just a quick tip — if you have a bad credit score, try to borrow smaller loans, as they are easy to get approved and return.

To be eligible to get your loan approved, you must be at least 18 years old or more, have a steady income source of $2,000/month, an SSN number, and lastly, but more importantly, a bank account under your name.

#5. Credit Loan


Looking for a loan up to $5,000 urgently but are unable to get one because of your bad credit score? Do not worry, because Credit Loan has numerous lenders in its network to lend you the amount you require regardless of your minimum credit score.

So, no matter the reason you need a loan, Credit Loan is there to help you out.

Another good thing about this platform is you can request a loan irrespective of the time of the day or night. Therefore, no need to follow the office timings of lenders to get some funds in the hour of need. Also, that conventional method totally fails when you need a loan right away.

People have been vowing for its service since 1998, which adds to its credibility and reputability. The network is continuously growing and facilitating both parties — lenders and borrowers.

Now, let us discuss some minute details about the terms and conditions of the platform.

Fees and Interest Rates

It has been mentioned numerous times earlier that loans come at a higher cost for those who have a poor credit score. That is something non-negotiable; unfortunately, these are the industry standards, and we have no other option.

Credit Loan’s APR ranges from 5.99% to 35.99%. Things like how much you would want to pay per month can be directly discussed with the lender since the platform steps out once you two are connected.

Last but not least, the platform itself charges no fees or hidden charges for connecting you to the lending party.

Loan Limits and Terms

You can get up to $40,00o lent to you if you are using Credit Loan. However, the limitation for poor credit report holders is they can only get a loan of up to $5,000, which is not bad. Moreover, you can return the loan easily in up to 60 months.

The terms and conditions remain the same for this platform too. For example, you need to have a personal bank account, proof of your citizenship, a reliable source of income, etc.


  • No hidden fees or charges
  • Loans up to $40,000 offered
  • 24/7 service
  • Reputable company with two decades of experience


  • Those with poor credit can only get loans up to $5,000

What Things Did We Keep in Mind While Compiling This List?

The following are essential factors that we kept in mind while making this list. So, if you are planning to get yourself a loan, make sure to keep these factors in mind, as they will prove to be a lifesaver for you.

This should be your first and foremost consideration when you are looking to get an emergency loan. No matter which platform you choose, be it CashUSA or Personal Loans, make sure you go through its customer review section before giving your final consent.

Talking about the terms and conditions when it comes to poor credit scores, most of the lenders willingly lend the amount to the borrowers having credit scores in their 600s. However, those who are willing to give loans at even lower scores are rarely found.

So, try to opt for a platform/lender who works on flexible terms and can lend you a loan even with a credit score below 600 or so.

Emergency loans are all about receiving the funds right away without any delay. But, if your need is not fulfilled because of delayed transfer of funds, what is even the point of getting an emergency loan?

Therefore, opt for a platform like MoneyMutual that can get you your funds in more than 24 hours.

Getting charged with any kind of hidden fees would be the most undesirable event you would face. Therefore, the platforms we have discussed in this article offer full disclosure of their terms and conditions and are transparent about all of the charges. Thus, you are in the safe zone in that regard if you opt for any of the above-discussed platforms.

Is It Possible to Get an Emergency Loan With Bad Credit?

The first thing you need to do is to compile your financial record, whether it is in the form of electronic or paper documents.

The type of financial record the lenders may ask for as proof of your earnings can consist of a payslip, w-25, the copies of tax return records for the last two years, or 1099s. Therefore, keep the latest bank statements in hand and the telephonic contact number of your employer if you are an employee.

You will also need to have evidence of your identity as well as your residential address. The proof of identity may include your driving license, State Identity Card, or even utility bills.

It would be quite apt to give an explanation to justify the financial constraints for which you had to opt for borrowing the emergency loan. You can provide documentary evidence in favor of your eligibility for the loan too. This is just an attempt to convince the lender about the genuineness of your need ,and that you are not habitual of borrowing loans for no reason.

Do remember the lenders would ensure your ability to return the loan. This criterion of judgment is measured by your debt-to-income ratio. Your credit score also matters here. If your debt payment liability is less than 35% of your income, then you are good to go.

The next step is shopping around in search of the best lender for yourself. Once you have found the right lender, it is time to undergo a soft credit inquiry. By soft credit inquiry, it is meant it will produce no effect on your credit score.

The hard credit check is applicable only when you finalize an application or offer for the loan. You need to have in your mind to make the credit inquiries as minimum as possible to save your score from dropping to certain points.

So, read the terms and conditions of the offer carefully before signing it. Make it quite certain you will be able to pay back the loan you are going to borrow in accordance with your commitments.

Don’t go for Payday Loans – How to Recognize Them?

Although you can get a payday loan regardless of your credit score, you better not go for this option. The reason is that such loans are too expensive and unreliable. Such offers are exclusively for people having poor credit scores.

Apparently, these types of loans seem good, but only for the time being. This is because the annual percentage rate of interest is excessively high (up to 300% to 400%). Also, if you fail to pay according to the given schedule, you will have to pay the extra charges and fees.

Here Is How to Recognize a Payday Loan


  • The lenders assure you they would not go for a credit inquiry, or credit score does not matter for them, it is a payday loan they are offering because the legit lending platforms will not do that.
  • Amounts are small — $500 or less. These loans are easily available without much documentary process and extraordinary efforts.
  • The repayment schedule is short. However, you are asked to pay it back within weeks.
  • The APR is way too high.

Then, it is a payday loan.

Have Basic Knowledge About Emergency Loans Beforehand…

If this is your first time borrowing an emergency loan from a lender online, you need to know a few things in advance.

These important things are as follows:

  • Just because you have submitted an application for a loan does not mean you will get a loan. No platform gives a full and final guarantee about that. In fact, these websites have put on a disclaimer saying you might not find your lender here. This applies to you even if your credit score is favorable.
  • A good thing about most of these online lenders is they do not run a hard inquiry on your credit report and let you go through all of the available options.
  • To get your funds transferred to you ASAP, finish the paperwork quickly once you get the approval.
  • Know the difference between secured and unsecured loans. Although the secured loans have lower APRs, there is still one risk involved in them — losing your belongings if you fail to repay the loan since secured loans require collateral. In contrast, unsecured loans charge higher APRs but require no collateral.
  • Unfortunately, those having poor credit reports are obliged to pay higher interest rates. But, these platforms can ease them out a bit since the lenders here work at a fixed interest rate range, which means market fluctuations will not cause you to pay more interest rates than what you signed up for.

FAQs About Emergency Loans for Bad Credit

Q1. Is 600 a Poor or Minimum Credit Score According to FICO?

No. FICO defines a score that ranges from 600-660 fair. But, do not think of it as a good credit score. Also, if your score falls even a point below that, it would be considered poor. Therefore, we can say 600 is a borderline credit score.

Q2. How Big of a Loan Can I Get with a Poor Credit Score?

Many lenders available online might be willing to give you up to $25,000 even with a poor credit score by charging you hefty interest rates.

The thing you must consider is how much you need. For instance, if you need $1,000, you should request only $1,000, and nothing more. This is because the smaller the loan, the easier it will get approved, and of course, the lower the interest rates will be.

Q3. Is There Any Alternative to Interest-Based Loans?

If your credit score does not support you enough for an emergency, personal, or installment loan, there are two options left. Either you will have to sell some of your belongings to get your need for money fulfilled, or you can borrow some amount from your friend or relative.

However, even if you borrow money from your friend or relative, do not forget to decide the terms and conditions beforehand. Also, make sure to repay the amount in time, or otherwise, you might end up losing something that cannot be lent to you — that precious relationship.

Q4. What Makes Online Lending Better Than Conventional Lending?

There are numerous reasons to enlist in this regard. Online lending helps you apply at multiple platforms from the comfort of your home. It also saves you from undergoing several hard credit inquiries. Also, these platforms offer you comparatively reasonable interest rates.

Lastly, the best thing about online lending sources is their lenders report your performance to credit bureaus from time to time, which may help you in raising your credit score.

Q5. Which Is the Best Online Lending Platform?

Although all of the platforms that have been discussed in this article are reliable and worthy of a chance, in talking about bad credit score holders, we would recommend MoneyMutual.

Conclusion: Which Is the Best Portal to Get Emergency Loans?

Online money lending platforms have opened new vistas for us when it comes to the lending market. Contrary to conventional lenders that require a lot of written applications, in-office or in-person meetings, and endless investigations, these platforms allow you to get funds transferred to your account in a matter of 24 hours without any hassle.

Not only that, but these platforms can also help you pave your way towards a good and even excellent credit score by reporting your timely monthly payments to credit bureaus.

So, in my opinion, MoneyMutual and all other above-mentioned platforms are the best for emergency loans since they allow you to get done with the whole process from the comfort of your home.

At one stage or another, we might find ourselves in need of a loan to help us out with a pressing financial obligation. This obligation can be paying rent, a medical emergency, or covering your mortgage.

It goes without saying that these matters require immediate availability of cash, which for the most part, isn’t something many of us have on hand at all times.

Of course, you might try to get a loan from a bank or financial institution for the time being, but this may be difficult for those with a bad credit history. Trying to get an emergency loan when you have bad credit is like trying to look for a needle in a haystack without knowing where the haystack is.

Nevertheless, if you find yourself in this situation, don’t lose hope just yet; there are ways to get loans even if you have a bad credit history.

There are loans for bad credit available, even if you don’t qualify for the best lending conditions. Therefore, try not to view your low credit score as a roadblock but rather a stumbling block that you can overcome. At what cost, though?

Naturally, because the risk of lending to a bad credit holder is higher, the terms and conditions are different from those given to good credit holders. As a result, you’ll have to make trade-offs and sacrifices.

While bad credit personal loans and emergency loans can provide immediate access to cash, they can come with high interest rates and other limitations. That is why it is crucial to examine any offer before making a decision carefully. There is no one-size-fits-all lending provider for everyone. Several factors influence which bad-credit loan business is suitable for you!

How We Made the List Of Best Emergency Loans Online?

We understand that finding a suitable lender whose terms and conditions, for the most part, coincide with your own is the most challenging part of the process. It’s difficult, as well as time-consuming, to always be on the lookout for new lenders and have your paperwork ready for each potential lender. Therefore, we think an online lender marketplace would be a life-changer for you.

We looked for lending marketplaces specializing in helping individuals with poor credit, only to find out, much to our dismay, that most of them demand a service fee. Let us suppose the example of a person who is in a financially distressing situation, and he already knows he’ll have to pay back with added interest. When attempting to find a lender, the last thing one needs is to be forced to pay a fee. Hence, we started looking for reputable lending platforms that provide a completely free-of-charge service.

The main goal was to locate free servers and have a large number of potential lenders and various loan types available. The servers had lenient conditions, such as the lowest possible credit score requirement and ones that didn’t need collateral.

Accordingly, our selection of free loan marketplaces not only links you to reliable lenders but also provides you with flexible terms and conditions. We are ultimately saving you lots of time and money with no minimum credit requirements. This also includes clear terms, straightforward requirements, and an easy-to-follow application process.

Joining these chosen marketplaces will enable you to locate lenders who have flexible lending criteria, satisfactory terms and requirements, and, most importantly, clear conditions. That provides you with a complete picture and assists you in making the best decision possible for yourself.

What We Looked For

Here is what we looked for:

  • Experienced companies
  • How many lenders are available
  • An easy sign-up process
  • Security is provided to the client
  • Availability across the nation
  • Great customer reviews

The following article will outline all of the specifications for each portal, helping you choose the best bad credit lender for yourself.

How Do I Pick The Best Emergency Loans Most Suited To My Needs?

Have a Financial Plan

First and foremost, you should make a financial plan. You need to have a set and determined budget. Knowing how much you can afford is a crucial step when it comes to choosing the right loan. Lenders may allow you to qualify for a loan that would completely max out your budget, which would leave no room for an unforeseen expense. With a budget, you can avoid terrible financial decisions like these by understanding which loans to apply for and which to avoid.

Do Your Research

Secondly, do your diligent research and inform yourself of your loan options. You might be looking for a student loan or an educational loan. You might be looking for something broader, like a personal loan. Knowing the different types of loans when looking for loan options will help you with this decision.

Compare the Rates

Moreover, you should compare the rates and conditions of the different lenders. In times of need, you may feel compelled to settle for the first opportunity that comes your way but choosing the first lender you speak with isn’t always in your best interest. You should look at the rates, fees, and conditions of several online lenders first to ensure you’re receiving the best offer.

Check the Requirements

Furthermore, lenders may have various pre-approval documentation requirements, so be sure you’re ready to submit the necessary information. These include your driver’s license or government I.D., your SSN, employment history, and income details, as well as personal information such as your full name, address, and contact information.

Go Through The Paperwork

Lastly, read the fine print. Going through all the loan paperwork isn’t exactly something everyone enjoys doing, especially when we can’t help but skim over it when doing so. However, this doesn’t make it any less critical. To avoid buyer’s remorse, thoroughly read and scrutinize the fine print to help ensure that there aren’t any inaccuracies or surprises. This means keeping an eye on your interest rate, lender and loan processing fees (which vary by lender), and monthly payments.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask your lender immediately to understand any specific costs or because of any inaccuracy in the documentation (such as a misspelled name or a wrong bank account). Getting ahead of any problems as soon as possible saves you a lot of headaches later.

FAQs About Emergency Loans Online

Q. Is using online lending portals safe?

The company uses 256-bit SSL encryption, which is the most advanced and widely used website encryption. This encryption secures any personal or banking information you submit on any of the above-recommended organizations’ websites.

Q. Do these companies check credit?

Having a low or no credit score is usually not a problem for the lenders who work with these businesses. Some lenders may make a soft inquiry that has no impact on your credit score. On the other hand, the firm’s disclaimer notes that by submitting your request on the site, you enable the company and the lenders it works with to retrieve your credit profile for a credit check, examine your credit report, and contact you if necessary.

Q. Are these trustworthy loan companies?

We’ve mentioned that companies have many years of experience, so they have built a loyal clientele and a trustworthy lending group. Moreover, these companies work with trusted partner lenders to help you find a personal loan. So yes, they are definitely the most recommended portals for acquiring a fast loan.

Q. Is it hard to get a loan from these portals?

You only need to meet the basic requirements for each company to apply with a reasonable probability of getting a loan. So, just read the conditions carefully and follow the application steps.

Q. Do these companies provide payday loans?

That’s a tricky question to answer since payday loans are mostly illegal in most states. In fact, only Money Mutual has some lenders offering payday loans. However, we can confirm that none of those mentioned above companies is a payday lender in itself; they are online marketplaces that connect borrowers with other lenders. The terms and conditions of each loan differ depending on the lender and the status of the borrower himself.

Q. Who provides the funds for the borrowers?

Requests for credit submitted through fund seekers are forwarded to different lending partners, including individuals, financial institutions, and, in some cases, banks. Depending on the situation, any of these shows willingness to lend the fund requested.

Q. What are the benefits of these online loan portals over other borrowing options?

While many short-term loans include unexpected fees, the terms of fund acquisition through any of the companies mentioned above are straightforward and transparent. You’ll have access to a secure online account to review your credit agreement and other important terms of your loan. All of them also provide exceptional customer service teams on standby to help you with any requests or questions.

Q. How much can I borrow?

The companies mentioned above offer a wide range of credit limits ranging from $500 to $10,000, except for Personal Loans, where the limit is up to $35,000. When your loan request is approved, your credit limit is decided depending on the lender’s criteria.

Q. How do I know if my request for a loan has been approved?

If your request for an online personal loan is approved, you will receive an email or SMS notifying you of the approval.

Q. When will I receive my funds?

Once the loan request is accepted and you approve the lender’s agreement terms, the funds are usually transferred to your account within 24-hours.

Q. How do I qualify for a loan?

To be eligible for a loan through any of the lending portals mentioned above, you must:

  • Be of legal age (18 or above)
  • Be a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident
  • Own an active bank account
  • Have a regular, consistent source of income
  • Have a valid contact number and an active email address

Q. How do I get started?

The starting procedure is very simple. You can fill out an application form on the homepage of the company whose conditions you meet. This website will lead you to further pages where other details will be entailed.

Q. In which states do these companies offer loans?

Other than Money Mutual, which doesn’t offer loans in New York and Connecticut, all states are covered by the companies mentioned above.

Q. Are there any fees to apply?

There are absolutely no fees for requesting a loan through any of these companies. Your online application is completely free. Moreover, you shouldn’t worry about any hidden charges since all of the companies mentioned above are very transparent and honest with their clients.

Q. How do I pay back the loan?

Once your loan is approved, you will receive all the necessary details regarding the payback method from the lender. You will be issued a Periodic Statement outlining the sum of your monthly payment, your payment due dates, the period of the loan payback, etc.

Q. What would happen if I wasn’t able to pay at the right time?

In a positive scenario, you should always try to make your payments on time. However, if for any reason you fail to do so, the lender may ask you to pay the penalty with your repayment installments.

In another case, if you have a good communication network with your lender, you can ask them for an extension and hope that they oblige.

Q. Is there a limit for the use of money?

If you choose to apply for a personal loan, you can use the money wherever and for whatever you want. Many companies clearly mention this term that you can spend your loan wherever you want at free will.

On the other hand, you cannot do that for auto loans and housing loans since these loans are purchase-specific.


It’s fair to say that needing a loan is never a pleasant experience, especially if you already have a poor credit score. Limited lender alternatives and exorbitant APRs appear to be an unavoidable reality.

Regardless of how desperate you are for cash, you must make a well-informed decision about which loan offer to take. Rushing into any loan agreement out of desperation or fear of not having other options only adds up to your already heavy financial burden and exploits your limited resources.

Using loan portals is unquestionably the best alternative, as it not only saves you time but also provides you with a comprehensive overview of your options and allows you to compare the terms of various loan providers. You should choose the deal with the best terms and a manageable payback schedule for you. You must bear in mind that a loan is simply a temporary solution to your present financial issue, and the cash borrowed must be repaid at some point.

So, plan wisely, make your decisions wisely and spend the loan wisely. Moreover, after you make a calculated decision, have faith in yourself.

Meta Description: Are you looking for quick cash for unexpected expenses? If so, emergency loans for bad credit scores can help you.

Saving money is both wise and practical. People with a pragmatic approach are considered to be smart with their decisions and investments. Such an approach helps you save money for special occasions and prepares you for financial emergencies.

But no matter how much you prepare, an unforeseen incident is enough to catch you off-guard, leaving you stressing about your next move. It can be anything from a mishap at home, an urgent car repair, losing your job, a medical emergency, or other challenging life events.

The gravity of the situation is amplified when you are already struggling with a bad credit score. Considering that most conventional lenders will first check your credit report before approving your loan, the chances of getting an instant loan are not so great if you are already dealing with a bad credit score.

This is where emergency loans for bad credit come in. Unlike traditional lenders who rely on your credit report to consider your loan application, these non-conventional lenders use other details to determine whether to approve your loan or not.

For instance, they may check things like your bank statements to determine your ability to repay the loan. Therefore, you can qualify for a loan even if you have a bad credit score.

This article features some of the most reliable companies that provide access to emergency loans, even for people with bad credit scores.

Our list features MoneyMutual, BadCreditLoans, CashUSA, and Personal Loans as the top four picks. Offering you secure service while connecting you to reliable lenders, these companies will prove to be your companions in financially challenging times.

With a reasonably quick and straightforward process — from requesting to receiving — these loan-granting agencies make their services available to all. They understand that time is of the essence during urgent requests. Thus, they may present your requested funds — once reviewed and confirmed by the lender — as soon as the next business day.

Unlike other money lending agencies, they allow you to assess their services for free. Additionally, they put no obligations on you to accept a lender’s terms and conditions, so it is solely your decision to agree to a loan.

All of the provided information will build your profile that will be shared with the lenders in our network to help decide whether they want to offer you the loan. Once the lenders have reviewed your profile, they will request you to provide more details to complete the form present on their website.

How We Made This List

Initially, we started by looking for all the emergency loan granting companies in the U.S. These companies then underwent a comprehensive analysis of their policies and background.

Many unreliable and suspicious companies have already fallen off the grid here. However, our research did not stop; we continued skimming out our list with our determining criteria in mind.

We also checked whether or not these companies work with bad credit scores. Again, only those that offer such services remained on our list.

As we continued our selection process, we ensured that the companies we selected were up to our specified standards for security and efficiency.

What We Looked For

The following are the factors that we looked for while making this list:

  • Background check of the company offering the loan — It is essential to know if the company you are associating with is reliable and capable of fulfilling your needs.
  • Free services — When you are facing financial difficulties, the last thing you need is to pay hidden fees.
  • Easy-to-access website featuring a simple form — Various websites ask for unnecessary information during the initial request, making the process even more complex and risking a security breach. To prevent that, we ensured that our websites incorporate straightforward, secure, and easy-to-access forms.
  • Clear and transparent process — This ensures the credibility of the company and guarantees a scam-free loan experience.
  • Security and privacy policies — Your personal and financial data can be misused in unimaginable ways if it falls into the wrong hands. Thus, ensuring a safe and secure service that values your privacy is a must.
  • Fast fund transfers — This is to make sure that you receive your cash fast enough to fulfill your emergency needs.

What You Should Look for While Selecting an Emergency Loan for Bad Credit?

Many factors contribute to borrowing secure and fast online credit. Some of the factors you should look for include a privacy policy, security, and repayment procedure.

Privacy Policy

Whenever there is money or private information involved, always do thorough research on the privacy policy of the company concerned.

Privacy policies are legal statements or documents that comprise the information they collect from the clients, disclosure, commitments to privacy and security, your rights, and other concerning factors. This sets the ground for most of the company values and credibility.

If there is not a privacy policy defined or if it consists of contradicting statements, you should know something is fishy. Many scammers trick clients into giving out their sensitive information and using it against them illegally for crimes.


You should also pay attention to the platform’s security. Since everything is taken care of online, your personal and financial information security is at high risk. Any malware, eavesdropping, or other hacker attacks, can cause you lasting damage.

And these events may further lead to issues like identity theft, stealing your bank balance, and misusing your name and info in other illegal and far more severe crimes.

To keep yourself protected, you should always pay extra attention to a company’s security measures. There should be advanced or industrial-standard data encryption, so even if a hacker attack takes place, your data will still be secure.

Additionally, daily or weekly scans are also really beneficial in detecting such malware and show that the company is committed to your continued protection.

Repayment Procedure

You should also ensure you check a lender’s repayment procedure. Make sure that the service you are choosing has a clearly defined repayment method mentioned on its website.

This makes you aware of the process and terms you should be following for a timely and hassle-free money return.


While choosing a loan, the final decision should always be yours. To ensure your satisfaction, check an offer’s terms and conditions to make sure they match your needs and repayment abilities..

Before making a decision, go through each of the critical elements of your loan agreement, including interest rates, repayment methods, and other terms.

A company that does not oblige you to accept their terms is a trustworthy one offering a transparent service, with no intentions of scamming you whatsoever.

FAQs about Best Emergency Loans

Q. What is bad credit?

A bad credit score refers to a low credit score that reflects your inability to pay bills or return monthly payments timely, which is most likely to repeat in the future. Typically, a credit score is measured using five factors; payment history, the amount owed, credit history’s length, credit mix, and new credit.

All these factors have their respective percentage in the calculation. If they sum up to be less than 580 points, you have a bad credit score and are considered a risky borrower.

Q. What is a line of credit?

A line of credit is an open loan extended by a bank or credit union where the lender defines an upper limit. The borrower can request as much money as needed below the upper limit. Once you’ve repaid the loan, you may start borrowing again as usual.

The line of credit typically comes with a longer time frame and a higher amount of funds than a regular personal loan. And this grants you flexibility and convenience with your monthly payments.

Q. Are online lending companies safe for emergency loans?

Online lending companies are just as safe as in-person banking. They used advanced data encryption technology to secure sensitive data and protect it from hackers and malware.

Nonetheless, online lenders save you a lot of time as you do not have to make rounds to the credit union or bank until your emergency loan is processed. You can do the same online, at a much faster rate and with minimum hassle.

Q. Are short-term or long-term loans better for someone struggling financially?

Short-term emergency loans are typically required to be repaid over a few months, while long-term loans usually have a flexible repayment time frame ranging up to a few years. Both are fit for people suffering financially and satisfy different needs.

If you find it easy to pay back a short amount now and then, a short-term loan would be perfect for you; however, a long-term loan would be ideal if you need a large sum of money to return over a more flexible and extended time frame. Keep in mind that your ability to obtain certain types of loans may be impacted by your credit score.

Q. Is it confirmed that I’ll get a loan with bad credit scores?

A bad credit score is an issue when applying for an emergency loan. However, you may still qualify for some of the best lending companies, just like the ones discussed in this article extensively.

There is no guarantee that you will be able to obtain an emergency loan. In fact, with online best emergency payday loans, there is a chance you may not even find a lender suiting your requirements – this applies to even those with good credit scores.


Making it through financially difficult times can be challenging and exhausting. For this reason, we introduced four of the best options that can potentially help you through a sticky situation.

These companies provide safe services, fast turn-around times, and a transparent and straightforward lending process. Additionally, these companies feature a set of diverse lenders and third-party services that can offer you the money you need in a crisis.

Platforms like MoneyMutual go above and beyond to help you connect with a suitable lender, offering flexible terms and conditions.

How We Made This Emergency Loan List

Selecting the right platform for your loan requirements is crucial to avoid malpractices. Here are some factors you should consider while choosing your loan provider:

It is essential to know a company’s reputation before committing to it. This article has recommendations of lenders with great reviews for customer service and care. Moreover, you can also find all of the Better Business Bureau registered companies here.

Every lender mentioned in this article accepts borrowers with a credit score as low as 600. Some lenders also consider scores below this range.

Time plays a significant role in all emergencies. Therefore, all of the suggested platforms will finance you within one to two working days.

It is essential to commit to a company that is transparent about its fees and policies. All of the lenders on this list disclose their policies and fees, as the last thing you need is a surprise in your finances.

A Guide to Emergency Loans with Bad Credit

You can qualify for a loan in less than an hour and have the money in your bank account by the next working day thanks to online lending networks. This is a simple procedure that does not need excellent credit. 

Users with a poor credit score can find a loan option with relatively lower interest rates compared to those offered by a credit card cash advance, a title loan, or a subprime loan. 

There are some crucial aspects you need to know before getting an emergency loan. Here are some factors you need to consider before seeking loans with a bad credit score. 

  • An Application Does Not Mean a Guaranteed Offer

This rule applies to people with good credit as well. Lenders often have a disclaimer on their website saying you cannot apply for an emergency loan and always expect an offer.

  • Inquiries Do Not Hurt Your Credit Score

Many loan providers allow you to browse and monitor different rates without a thorough credit check. It never hurts to research every option carefully. 

  • Send Supporting Documents Without Delay

The faster you submit your paperwork and get it to the lender, the quicker you will get the funding you require. So, try to be as quick as possible.

  • Be Careful About Unsecured Loans

Unsecured loans have higher APRs. However, they include the probability of you losing your collateral (for example, a car) if you cannot pay back the loan. 

  • Pick a Fixed Rate of Interest

Choose a fixed rate of interest whenever possible. Borrowers with bad credit have to pay higher interest rates, and that is (unfortunately) a constant in the market. However, every lender has an option of fixed-rate. With this option, you do not have to worry about your interest rate rising with market fluctuations. 

Things to Consider Before Getting Started To Take Emergency Cash Online

It would be best if you looked at a company’s reputation before asking for money.

You can do this by reading customer reviews on the company’s website and other public forums. They are one of the best ways to ensure a company’s authenticity. You can also look at feedback from bloggers, content creators, critics, etc. 

You should also consider the funding speed to see if you can get the cash in your account immediately. With thorough research, you will be more likely to get better and faster service. 

Moreover, the company needs to be transparent about its policies and services. It would be best if you also were informed about any additional fees required. 

Emergency Loan Requirements

After choosing a platform, visit the company’s official website, and it will direct you to a short request form for a loan. You will need to fill out some standard identifying information such as the following:

  • Name 
  • Address 
  • Email ID 
  • Phone number 
  • Social security number
  • Income information 
  • Reason for your requested loan 

The website will then forward your request to their network of lenders. You will receive an email notification when a loan provider accepts your request. 

If you get an offer you prefer, you will have to visit the lender’s website details to find the formal loan application. As soon as you finish the paperwork, the lender will start transferring funds to your linked bank account.

The money should be in your bank account by the following business day. Since every lender uses automated underwriting, you can submit a loan request at any time of the day from anywhere in the United States.

How to Get an Emergency Loan

The reason for requiring a loan may vary from user to user. However, there are a few established steps to apply for an emergency loan. Some of them are mentioned below:

Check Credit Score

Lenders do not always inform borrowers of their minimum credit score requirements.

For example, a lender might say they think a credit score of 500 or better is acceptable. However, a credit score of 500 or better does not guarantee loan approval any more than a score of 200 does.

Even those with excellent credit scores might fail to qualify for a loan if they are under a lot of debt or do not meet the income requirements of the loan. If you have a bad credit score, you need to follow the given steps. 

Financial Paperwork 

Lenders usually want proof of income. So, collect your financial documents. These would include:

  • Pay stubs
  • W-2s
  • 1099s
  • Copies of tax returns for the past couple of years
  • Recent bank statements
  • Employer’s contact information 
  • Proof of identity and residence (Driver’s license, State ID, Utility Bills)

Explain Your Situation 

It is best if you explain your emergency in writing. You can provide documents like job loss notifications or medical bills to support your statement. The point of this is to let the lenders know this is a one-time or rare event.

Debt-to-Income Ratio

Loan providers often consider your debt-to-income ratio along with your credit score. You can calculate the ratio of the sum of your monthly debt loan and monthly income. The sum of your monthly debt loan might include the following.

  • Student loans
  • Mortgage payments
  • Car payments
  • Child support

It is advisable to put less than 35% of your income towards debt.

Browse Around 

You should research options from lenders on the list and compare them. Moneylenders usually perform a “soft” credit check in the beginning. Soft credit checks do not affect your credit score. You will not face a “hard” credit check until you decide on an application.

However, you may want to minimize or avoid these credit checks, as they drop your credit score by a few points.

Read the Terms & Conditions

Before you sign for a loan, you need to read every single word of your offer letter. Ensure you are in a position to follow the policies and instructions of the offer on schedule. 


Many consumers think they should have traditional employment income to qualify for a personal loan, student loan, business loan, or credit card. This is not always the case. 

An online lender only requires you to show that you have sufficient income, reassuring them you are fit to repay your debt. The income source need not come from a traditional job.

Many lenders consider income from numerous sources such as the following.

  • Retirement accounts
  • Government benefits
  • Rental properties
  • Investments
  • Child support
  • Alimony
  • An annuity
  • Student aid
  • Structured settlement

If you skip a credit check while applying for a loan, you have to pay a high-interest rate and additional fees to offset the risk the lender is taking.

Emergency Loans Without Credit Check 

You can qualify for an emergency loan without a credit check. However, this will require collateral for loan approval. It is an expensive and risky loan option. However, if you are set on it, here are some secured loans you can acquire without a credit check. 

Pawn Shop Loans

You will have to pawn a valuable item to acquire a loan. This loan will average between 25% to 60% of the pawned item’s value. If you cannot pay the loan on schedule, you will lose ownership of the collateral. 

Auto Title Loans

You will have to sign over your vehicle’s title for approval of this loan. If you stop paying, the lender will repossess the vehicle. 

With that said, some of the most common loans, like home loans and auto loans, are forms of secured debts. However, some secured loans prey on borrowers with bad credit, contributing to a vicious debt cycle. 

So, ensure you have read and understand the terms of any loan before signing legally bound paperwork. 

Payday Loan Options

Another option is to take a payday loan. However, you should try to avoid this one as much as possible. You might find them reasonable at first, as these have small loan amounts with short payment terms. 

However, their APRs are huge (ranging from 300% to 400%), and if you do not repay the debt by the end of the term, you will have to pay extra fees. 

In short, as long as you show proof of sufficient income to repay the debt within a month, these loans skip credit checks. You need to stay prepared to pay a hefty interest charge and penalties that will burn a hole in your pocket if you do not repay the loan on schedule.

This is how you can recognize a payday loan. 

  • The lender guarantees they will not run a credit check, as legitimate money lending services have a way to check your financial status.
  • The loan amounts are approximately $500 or less and easy to acquire without a lot of documentation or due diligence from your side.
  • APRs are high, ranging anywhere from 200% to 400%.
  • You have a short period to pay back the loan (weeks, not months). While a brief repayment period might seem to reduce your overall interest, it is unrealistic for customers to come up with the money so soon. You might end up in even more debt.

FAQs About Emergency Loans

Q. Where Can You Find Emergency Loans for Bad Credit?

Many lenders offer emergency loans to people having bad credit. Some of the most common options are the following. 

  • Credit unions
  • Online lenders
  • Credit card companies 
  • Traditional banks
  • Payday lenders
  • Friends and family

You need to stay cautious while borrowing money. For example, credit card companies that give you credit card cash advances are costly and may degrade your credit score.

It would be best if you avoided title and payday loans. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau issues a warning that an average two-week payday loan has a steep APR, almost equal to 400%.

Q. Does Taking an Emergency Loan Affect Your Credit Score?

Yes, some types of loans can impact your credit score, but others do not. It entirely depends on your credit report with TransUnion, Equifax, or Experian.

The loan will not impact your credit score if a lender does not report it to the credit bureaus. This is unless you default, and a collection agency puts in the debt to your credit reports. 

However, credit unions, banks, and online lenders usually report account data, while title lenders and payday lenders do not. How you manage the account determines if it will hurt or help your credit score when a lender reports your emergency loan with bad credit to a credit bureau.

Q. How Should You Choose an Emergency Loan?

When a loan provider gets a loan request, they usually check your credit score and report. After weighing their options, they decide if they can afford to loan you money. 

Similarly, you should do your research too. Always look at the pros and cons of financing options before borrowing money. Here are some questions you need to ask before choosing an emergency loan for bad credit:

  • Can you afford another monthly payment?
  • Does the provider give loans to customers with bad credit?
  • What is the charge/APR range for emergency loans?
  • Are there any additional fees you should look at?
  • How long will it take for you to repay the loan?
  • How will you receive the funds after qualifying?

Q. Are There Any Alternatives to Emergency Loans?

Emergency loans might offer temporary relief. However, getting buried under more debt may not be a good solution. Before filling out a loan request, you should look at your budget to ensure you can repay the money every month.

Additionally, if you realize the debt will extend, you should go for alternative approaches. Here are some emergency loan alternatives:

  • Temporarily look at making fewer payments on your credit cards
  • Try to negotiate hardship payment plans with creditors
  • Request an advance from your employer
  • Look for an advance paycheck from Earnin or other services

Q. How Much Are the Fees Charged by Loans?

Loan providers choose the fees they want to charge for specific services. This means some fees may be higher than others. 

It may not be possible for you to predict the exact fees for your loan offer, but here is a list of common fees:

  • Interest fees
  • Late payment fees
  • Loan application process fees
  • Prepayment penalties 

Ensure you ask all of the questions you have before signing any paperwork to know you are comfortable with the terms.

Q. Is 600 an Acceptable Credit Score?

FICO states that a score ranging between 600 to 660 is fair. However, do not be under the impression that this is a good credit score. 

If your credit score is under 600, even by a point, then it is said to be a poor score. Therefore, you can consider 600 as the minimum credit score. 

Q. How Much Can I Ask for with a Poor Credit Score?

Many online money lenders might give you up to $25,000 even if you have a poor credit score. However, they might ask you to pay hefty interest rates. So, you must look at how much money you need. 

For example, if you want $1,000, you should only ask for $1,000, nothing more. This is because the smaller the loan is, the easier it will be to get it approved. Additionally, the interest rates will also be lower. 

Q. Why Is Online Lending Better Than Conventional Lending?

There are multiple reasons to enlist for this. Online lending will help you request at numerous platforms from the comfort of your home. It will also save you from having to undergo multiple hard credit inquiries. 

These sites bring you comparatively acceptable interest rates as well. One of the best things about lending sources online is that their lenders give updates to your credit bureaus. These timely reports of your performance raise your overall credit score. 

Q. Are There Any Emergency Loans You Should Avoid?

Yes, there are a few emergency loans you need to avoid taking as much as possible. Here is a list for you: 

Payday loans are short-term and high-cost loans. Even if you have an emergency, taking a payday loan is a risky choice. Payday lenders ask you to pay fees that equate to APRs of 400%. They do not even check your credit scores or confirm your capability to repay the loan. 

However, they ask you for a blank check to get the money you have to repay or your bank account. Borrowers who cannot pay the loan by then usually borrow money again, making them indebted even more. 

A lender will estimate the value or price of your vehicle and then will offer to give you a percentage. If you end up accepting, the money provider will hold onto the car’s title, and you will get your loan. 

The money giver will not generally review your capability of repaying the loan and might charge APRs ranging from 200%-300%. Car title loans are unsafe, as the lender will be able to hold your car’s title. If you do not repay the loan, you will lose your vehicle. 

Pawn loans might have lower APRs than car title and payday loans, but they are still just as risky. The rates are above 100%, and you have a chance of losing something you value. 

With pawn loans, you will have to give your lender valuables to the pawnshop. After they look at the value, they will provide you with a loan depending on their assessment. You will have to repay the loan with interest to get your item back. 

If you can repay the loan, but it makes a huge hole in your pocket, you might end up going to the pawnshop again. 

  • No Credit Check Installment Loans

You need to be aware of online lenders who put themselves in the position of low-cost supplements to payday loans. However, they do not look at your credit. Some no credit check installment loans have similarities with auto-title and payday loans. 

These similarities include high-interest rates and additional fees to make the loans less reasonable than thought. Lenders like OppLoans and Rise give emergency loans with extended terms but with high rates of interest. 

You can look at these loan lenders only if you can rule out lower-cost supplements.

In Conclusion: What is the Top Emergency Loan Company for Bad Credit?

According to a Federal Reserve Study conducted in 2018, 40% of adults cannot cover a $400 emergency when needed. If you do not have money kept aside for emergency expenses, you may have to take an emergency loan. Our recommendation for you would be to try MoneyMutual due to their great customer service, variety of plans, and great reviews. 

However, if you want to start preparing for an emergency expense, here are some tips to consider. 

  • Monitor your expenditure
  • Create a budget according to your bills and expenditure 
  • Open an emergency savings account 
  • Make it a habit to save money

Keeping up with a busy and expensive lifestyle is becoming a challenge for many. However, this costly lifestyle is not particularly chosen. It’s just the regular one and is getting quite heavy on the pocket these days. It is a consistent struggle for many to manage everyday essentials, especially when living in the US.

Inability to pay bills, being in constant debt, and not being able to repay the secured loan on time are contributing factors that result in bad credit. On top of that, if you encounter a financial emergency expense, you may find yourself in a state of panic.

How We Made This List For Emergency Cash Immediately Bad Credit

To compile this list, we conducted an online search gathering all the best emergency loans for bad credit-granting credit unions. They were further narrowed down on the condition of whether they entertain customers with a bad credit history or not. Only those who supported it remained on the list. The rest fell off the grid here.

To shrink the list even further, we ran a background check on the selected companies. Only those who stood out from the crowd in terms of user satisfaction, reputation, customer reviews, dependability, and quick transfer stayed on the list; the others were dropped. More specifically, this is how we cut short our diverse list of emergency lending companies to the top four brands that also support consumers with bad credit.

What We Looked For

The key areas we looked at while compiling our list are discussed in detail below:

  • Background in the Business: Our priority was to retain companies that have been providing their services for best emergency loans to low credit bearers for a while now. This was a significant part of our research since we aimed to bring you a tried and tested service and not a newbie to the market.
  • Customer Satisfaction: There’s hardly a better way to gauge brand and product excellence than through customer reviews. Our shortlisted companies have a high customer satisfaction rate and play a significant role in assisting their consumers wherever needed.
  • Free Requesting Form: A person in dire need of money with a history of bad credit is unlikely to be capable of paying the form fee. Those who can afford it might equally find it off-putting as the form is just a starting point. It doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get your required emergency loan. Thus, our list comprises companies offering free request forms.
  • Straightforward Process: To ensure that even a layperson could access the site and get an emergency loan with bad credit, we looked for a credit union with a convenient and transparent process.
  • Quick Money Transfer: As emergency loans are being requested for an urgent financial need. Hence, making sure that the customers receive a timely deposit was our most important area. Therefore, all these companies transfer funds once approved in one business day.

Key Factors to Remember When Trying to Getting an Emergency Loan with Bad Credit

We made a list of key factors to be kept in mind to make your lending experience smooth whenever you need to get an emergency loan. They are:

When making an online loan request, always keep an eye out for unusual activities. Unusual activities can be anything, including asking for unnecessarily private information like your credentials, complex requesting forms, hidden charges, or policies.

Additionally, check their customer history and learn how they earn their money from your investment. Some scammers act authentic, but they feed on selling your personal and financial information online and channeling it to commit unimaginable crimes.

Another suspicious activity would be trying to force you into making a quick decision. A reliable lender would never do that and would respect your decision in all cases.

You eventually have to return the loan amount. So, why not educate yourself on what you need to make the process hassle-free? Similarly, before signing up for an emergency loan, learn about the lender’s repayment method and conditions.

This may vary from broker to broker. Some lenders offer flexibility in repayment in the form of long-term repayment periods, while others prefer it to be in monthly installments.

Additionally, you should explore their interest rates and types—whether they are fixed or variable. All of these would help you pre-plan your repayment process.

APR is similar to a loan’s interest with the addition of any fees a lender might implement, such as prepayments. The yearly rate is charged for a loan (borrower) or earned by an investment (broker).

These rates differ from lender to lender. Thus, make sure you do not commit to a rate not suitable to you. You can do this by calculating the annual percentage rate given to you before closing the deal.

Fair Isaac Corporation (FICO) introduced a grading procedure that grants a score ranging from 300 to 850 points, known as the credit score. This sets the judging criteria for lenders to assess the financial history of a borrower. Essentially, this score makes it easier for them to decide whether they should work with the said borrower or not. This is the reason you should always keep an eye on your credit score to see if you have made notable progress that could help you qualify for the best emergency loans.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. What credit score is considered a bad credit score?

Fair Isaac Corporation (FICO) formulated a mechanism for creating a score against each borrower ranging from 300 to 850. The FICO score depends on five different factors: payment history, the amount owed, length of credit history, new credit, and credit mix. Each of these factors has a unique weightage that forms a score. According to FICO, a bad credit score ranges from 300 to 579 score points. However, a score ranging from 580 to 669 is pretty fair.

Q2. Why is it troublesome to obtain an emergency loan with bad credit?

Borrowers with low credit scores, typically within the range of 300 to 579, have a history of unreliability when it comes to paying bills, amongst other similar payments. This score also represents their probable inability to return funds within due time in the future, making them risky borrowers. Many companies follow a strict policy when it comes to the repayment of loans. Therefore, finding a company that entrusts you with the best emergency loans sometimes gets tedious, especially when you have a bad credit history.

Q3. Will a lending service help me in case a deal goes wrong with the payday lender?

This depends entirely on your lending service’s status. If you have a direct lender serving your financial needs, then there is a chance that they may consider your concerns until resolved. However, if you have a third-party lending company, like the ones discussed in this article, it’s not very likely that you’ll get backing in this matter. They simply provide you freedom of choice to accept or reject a proposed offer if it does not align with your interests. Besides, they have not been involved in the lending process themselves, making them unaware of your dealing with the actual lender.

Q4. Personal Loan Vs. Line of Credit. Which one works best for people with bad credit?

An emergency loan typically covering your personal expenses is known as a personal loan. These loans are handy for various reasons, including debt consolidation, home renovation, weddings, vacations, etc. They come with a fixed end date, and payday lenders grant them as one batch of money. Usually, you have to pay them back in a few months.

In contrast, the line of credit is a flexible lending method that comes with a preset credit limit. It allows you to retrieve as much money as required in unlimited transactions until you reach the preset. Once you pay your debt, you can resume the transactions as usual. These generally come with a long-term return policy.

Both personal loans and the line of credit work for people with financial emergencies. It solely depends on the consumer’s needs. Personal loans are for you if you need a comparatively small loan and find it easy to repay small installments given a deadline. However, if your financial emergencies come unannounced and you constantly find yourself lending money, the line of credit is ideal for you.

Conclusion : Best Online Emergency Loans

No matter what your financial emergency is, a supporting hand is always a plus. These extensively reviewed companies are your best way out of this urgent yet troublesome demand. It doesn’t matter if you’re searching for a personal loan with a short-term repayment process or a line of credit with flexible returns. You’re very likely to find what you need here.

Moreover, accessing the site to get the funds in your bank account is pretty fast and straightforward. Besides, all four of these companies connect you with reputable lenders granting you a quick deposit. Nonetheless, your data and privacy are safe from any security breaches here. So, set your worries aside with one of these by your side!

How We Made This List

With the sudden surge in popularity in the industry, many unsuspecting customers have been duped out of money through fraudulent online lending sites. Unfortunately, if you are new to online loans, it can be difficult to differentiate between real and fake lending sites. Some even go to the extent of faking customer reviews and getting fake certifications.

Therefore, to avoid this, it is important to do your research before choosing an online lender to work with. So, the list we have provided gives an unbiased review of the top four online lending companies in the industry today. To pick the top companies, we reviewed several contenders on different factors.

This list contains companies that offer same-day loans, quick cash transfers, convenient user policies, and good APR rates. 

To judge each platform, we categorized them into different features. Then, each company was reviewed on different characteristics in each category, including applicable fees, repayment terms, APR ranges, and loan amounts. Furthermore, we also assessed each lender on the additional features they offer, such as accepting co-signers or joint applications.

Lastly, to cut the number of companies shorter, we highlighted their features, like customer support services, borrower perks, and other qualities that simplify the borrowing process. 

What We Looked For:

Here are some of the prominent features we searched for when selecting the top four companies that provide same-day online loans with no credit check and guaranteed approvals. 

  • Reputation: We tried to avoid new companies and selected ones that had been in the business for a while and had built up a good reputation for providing a reliable service. So, the platforms listed all have genuine good customer reviews.
  • Funding Speed: The most important factor in getting the same-day loan is how quickly users receive the money. Therefore, all of the online lenders listed provide quick funding in less than a day.
  • Credit Flexibility: Credit flexibility is an important factor when dealing with same-day loans. Therefore, all of the lenders we chose approve loans based on financial stability rather than credit checks and credit history.
  • Safety and Transparency: Since these companies ask for extensive financial and personal information, they must show full transparency and disclosure.

Factors to Consider While Getting Same-Day Loans with No Credit Check and Guaranteed Approval:

Same-day loans with no credit check and guaranteed approval are the easiest way of getting instant money without the hassle of lengthy paperwork and a drawn-out process. Online loans may be easy, but some factors still have to be considered before accepting one.

Scammers are found in every other business due to technological development and modernization. Your personal and bank account details are highly sensitive and should never fall into the wrong hands. Therefore, you should run a background check on the website you are going to use. Make sure the company has spent years in the industry and has valid user reviews on their website. Furthermore, choose a website that has a valid address and phone number provided. Reputable companies use encrypted channels to transfer your data to the lender so your safety and privacy are not breached.

In addition, once you are connected to the lender, read the lender’s terms and conditions, as they are different from the host site. Although there might be many reputable websites online, it only takes one fake one to ruin your life. 

  • Lender’s Terms and Conditions

Once you have chosen the website, the next task should be to thoroughly go through the terms and conditions provided by the lender. Ensure you read the repayment process and schedule, interest type and rates, and other terms and conditions to avoid any inconvenience or problems in the future.

The interest rate is the most important factor to be considered by the borrower, as they should choose the most affordable one that goes with their plan. Some lenders offer fixed interest rates that remain constant throughout the loan term, while other lenders offer variable interest rates that fluctuate with the index rate. 

Furthermore, the repayment schedule is another important factor to be considered by the borrower. If you are unable to repay the amount on a decision deadline, you might end up facing financial nightmares, such as legal collection action or additional fees. However, for the convenience of borrowers, many lenders now offer easy monthly installment plans to repay the loan. It all depends on whether or not you have read the lender’s terms and conditions before making the deal.

Make sure the website you have chosen offers loans up to your required limit. This is because each website has its loan limit, which it does not exceed. So, for your convenience, we have made the following list of some reputable websites and the maximum amount of loans they each offer:

  1. MoneyMutual: Up to $5,000
  2. Personal Loans: Up to $35,000
  3. BadCreditLoans: Up to $10,000

Since the main purpose of a same-day loan with no credit check is convenience, you should ensure the website you have chosen offers same-day loan approval, i.e., within 24 hours. Also, make sure the website’s application process is simple, because, in this regard, saving time is your top priority. The quick and easy process is what makes a website reputable in this business. Therefore, websites that offer quicker approval are the easiest ones and are more reliable.

FAQs: Same-Day Loans

Q. What Are the Basic Requirements to Get a Same-Day Loan with No Credit Check and Guaranteed Approval?

A same-day loan with no credit check and guaranteed approval has made lives easier and less risky. These are short-term loans with relatively higher interest rates, and they are approved within 24 hours and can be used for emergency purposes, tuition fees, utility bills, etc. Usually, the repayment time varies from one week to one month, depending on the lender’s terms.

The following are some basic requirements to get a same-day loan with no credit check and guaranteed approval:

  • Must be a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S.
  • Must provide a valid home address, phone number, and email
  • Must have proof of stable income
  • Must be at least 18 years of age
  • Must have an active bank account
  • Must have valid proof of identification

Meeting this criteria does not mean you will get a same-day loan. These are just the necessary requirements every lender considers before giving out loans.

Q. Why Are My Bank Details Required?

Same-day loans with no credit check and guaranteed approval are a convenience in today’s time. Companies like Credit Loan, CashUSA, and MoneyMutual serve as a bridge between the lender and the borrower, and having an active bank account is a necessary requirement to be eligible for the loan. The purpose of asking for your bank details is so the loan transaction can take place at the time of payment. You will also have to send the repayment to the lender’s bank account. Most things are online now; therefore, having a bank account is necessary to get a same-day loan.

However, you do not have to worry about the safety of your personal and financial details. Most reputable companies have privacy and safety terms that are followed strictly. In addition, you can check what information is being shared with the lender.

Q. What if My Bank Account Is Empty? Can I Still Get a Loan?

This is not really an issue, as your loan is independent of your bank balance. Your bank details are required only for receiving the loan amount and repayment of that loan. So, it does not matter how much money you have in your bank account, as the lender has nothing to do with it. 

However, you should make sure you have a sufficient balance in your account when it is time to repay the loan.

Many lenders also have late payment options, where you can inform them about late payments beforehand, so you do not default.

Q. What Is the Maximum Amount I Can Borrow Through Online Loans with Same-Day Approval?

Different websites have different loan limits. These websites do not give out loans, but they act as a bridge to connect borrowers and lenders. Therefore, the lenders on these websites offer loans of different amounts ranging from $5,000 to $40,000, and the repayment time offered by the lenders typically ranges from one week to one month. In addition, many lenders make the repayment easy for the borrowers and offer monthly installment plans for paying back the loan.

Other factors like your credit score, financial stability, repayment time, etc. can also influence the maximum amount you can borrow. For example, suppose you are financially stable and have a good job. In this case, you are more likely to get accepted for larger loan amounts.

Q. Why Are the Interest Rates Higher for a Same-Day Loan Compared to an Ordinary Loan?

Since the same-day loans with no credit check and guaranteed approval are faster and more convenient, they are much more risky than ordinary loans. This is because the lender gives out a huge amount without any credit check and usually with a flexible repayment time. So, these risk amounts have a relatively higher interest rate, as the funding time is quick — within 24 hours. 

Additionally, they do not do extensive credit checks. So basically, you are paying higher interest rates for convenience, and the lender is charging higher interest rates because of the risk they are taking. But, there is no need to worry about these higher interest rates, as these websites have some of the best lenders in the U.S. Usually, most lenders offer monthly installment plans to the borrowers for the repayment of loans. So, repayment should not be an issue for you.

Yes, a same-day loan with no credit check is legal. Some reputable websites, like CashUSA, Personal Loans, MoneyMutual, etc., have a completely transparent process of connecting you with some of the best lenders in the U.S. You just have to beware of scam websites. 

Not only is the whole process of same-day loans legal, but it may also help you boost your credit score. Once you start repaying the loan amount in installments or any other easy payment plan, your credit score may increase as a result. 

Q. How Would I Know That a Website for Same-day Loans Is Not a Scam?

Scams and frauds are found everywhere these days. As far as same-day loans are concerned, many scammers develop fake websites and hire fake lenders just to get your personal and bank account details. Once they have these details, they use them for frauds, scams, and illegal payments. 

So, in order to protect your data and privacy, here are some things you need to make sure of before accepting an offer on a website:

  • Check how long the company has been operating in the industry
  • Make sure the company has valid user reviews on its website
  • Make sure the address and phone number provided on the website is valid
  • Google the company and see if you can find other information about it on different credible websites

These are some necessary authentication steps that will help you decide whether you want to borrow money through a certain website or not. 

Q. Which Websites Can I Rely on for Same-Day Loans with No Credit Check and Guaranteed Approval?

We have made a list of some reputable websites you can rely on for same-day loans with no credit check and guaranteed approval:

  • CashUSA
  • MoneyMutual
  • Personal Loans
  • BadCreditLoans
  • Credit Loan

Each of these websites has its own network of lenders, who decide the interest type, interest rates, and all other terms and conditions.


With many new companies entering the industry, getting an online same-day loan has become much easier and more convenient. Additionally, you do not have to worry about your ability to get a loan because of your bad credit score.

However, with new online loan companies opening up, it is important to do your research and pick the right one. If you want our opinion, you should go for MoneyMutual for their quick application, approval, and funding, their large network of trusted lenders, and for their top-notch customer service.

How We Rated & Reviewed the Best Providers

The online payday and emergency loan markets are booming at the moment which has also attracted a large number of fraudulent entities.

If you are new to this market, it can get difficult to differentiate between legitimate and fraudulent brokers and lenders. Some scam lenders even go as far as copying a legitimate website and faking customer reviews to appear more legitimate.

When reviewing and rating the different payday loan providers, we have decided to focus on two major aspects, the APR and the loan approval rate.


The APR annual percentage rate refers to the total cost of taking out the loan. This includes interest to be paid as well as any fees for application and processing. APRs for payday loans are typically higher than traditional loans.

Credit Flexibility

Other factors we have taken into consideration include credit flexibility and transparency. All the payday lenders in the above list approve loans based not on credit checks or credit history but on financial stability.


Transparency is also a big factor as payday lenders need to show full transparency and disclosure as they ask for extensive financial and personal information.

What is an Emergency Loan For Bad Credit?

An emergency loan refers to a type of personal loan that you can use to finance sudden unforeseen expenses. This can range from medical bills, education expenses, or even cash crunches while planning for a memorable event. It usually comes with a short-term which can range from a few weeks to 6 months and are meant for individuals that do have less than perfect credit records.

Because of this, emergency loans usually carry with them high amounts of interest. While it is always advised that you should set aside some cash for emergency purposes, emergency loans can just as well help you to recover from a bad financial situation. Emergency same-day loans can be used in scenarios such as your car breaking down, paying your utility bills, and any sudden medical expenses.

Types of Emergency Loans With Bad Credit

Emergency loans can be of several types with some of the most popular forms described in brief below.

Short Term Payday Loans

Payday loans, also known as payday advance, small-dollar loans, and cash advance loans which are generally unsecured in nature and come with high interest rates. The basic payday loan process involves the lender providing a short-term unsecured loan to the borrower which is to be paid back at the borrower’s next payday. While some lenders conduct some form of verification of employment or income status, the vast majority do not conduct such checks. Online payday lenders allow consumers to complete the loan application online. The lender then transfers the fund by direct deposit to the borrower’s account.

Installment Loans Over 3-24 Months

This is a type of personal installment loan which has a slightly larger tenure at 3 to 24 months on some occasions. The lender provides the borrower with a pre-determined fixed amount that must be repaid according to the scheduled payment dates as specified in the loan’s terms and conditions. Each payment you make will contain a portion of the principal amount borrowed along with the interest on the debt. Some of the variables that determine each installment amounts include the interest rate charged, the length of the loan, and the total amount. Installment loans usually have monthly regular payments which are fixed, allowing you to better plan your finances to make the required payments.

Title Loans

Title loans are another popular form of an emergency loan, which is secured in nature unlike some of the other options available here. Lenders use your vehicles as collateral to provide you the loan. In case you are unable to repay the loan amount by the end of the stipulated period which can last for 30 days, the lender has the full legal right to repossess your car to settle the debt. Similar to payday loans, title loans also carry with them a high rate of interest. Choose a title loan only when you intend to borrow small amounts and have the capacity to repay the loan within a month.

Tribal Loans

Tribal loans are different than state-licensed ones as they are offered by lenders belonging to Native American tribes. This form of emergency loan can be an alternative to payday loans if you need some quick cash. However, the problem occurs with the laws and rules regarding tribal lending, as some tribal lenders claim independence from state and federal laws. As a result, they can charge much higher interest rates compared to state-licensed lenders. In extreme cases, the lender may be able to take you to court for defaulting on the loan.

Advantages of Emergency Loans For Bad Credit

Emergency online loans provide a quick and guaranteed way for less credit-worthy individuals to access lines of credit when all other options are closed for them. There are numerous reasons why consumers are enticed by the prospects of emergency loans, with some of them mentioned in brief below.

Simple applications

One of the biggest reasons why consumers choose emergency loans is the lack of paperwork involved. Online lenders provide very simple and straightforward loan applications that can be completed within mere minutes. It saves a lot of time and energy when compared to traditional loans which can involve a huge amount of paperwork and a lengthy application process. On the other hand, you will just need to provide some basic information and some evidence of your financial status to the lender. The lender contacts the borrower in case some additional information is required.

Quick and hassle-free transfer

Online emergency loan providers usually tend to approve and transfer the loan amount quickly compared to other loan forms. Some brokers and lenders can accept your application within 5 minutes and transfer the required loan amount within one working day. This however, depends on your bank account and whether or not your bank supports fast transfer methods.

Plenty of options

Thanks to the advent of internet technology, applying for loans online has become the new norm. The days of waiting for an application only to have it rejected are long gone. Compared to applying with lenders individually, consumers are now more than willing to collaborate and ask for a loan with an online lender because of the easy process. The amount of options increases if you sign up with a lending broker which works with a network of established lenders under its network. It is the broker’s responsibility to match your application with a suitable lender who will then provide you the loan along with your preferred terms and conditions.

Only option for individuals with bad credit

You will get rejected by banks and other traditional financial institutions if your credit score or history fails to meet the rigid criteria set by them. In such cases, it can be hard for individuals who are already under e burden of financial stress, to find and access a line of credit from a reliable source. Fortunately, online emergency loans for bad credit are specifically designed financial products to help such financially struggling individuals. While the interest rates are comparatively high, the loan process is fast and lets anyone access credit in a matter of hours or days.


Most online emergency loan providers require to be registered with a financial regulatory body in the country they are operating. Being regulated means that the lender will have to operate their business in a responsible manner. The lenders must deal with clients who are struggling to repay their loans in an ethical way.

Disadvantages of Emergency Loans For Bad Credit

Just like any other financial product, emergency loans also carry with them a set of disadvantages that applicants should be aware of.

Higher interest rates

According to critics, emergency loans carry one of the greatest risks for lenders, which is why they charge high-interest rates and payment fees. This is to offset the risk of providing loans to financially struggling individuals. Typical APRs for these types of loans can range from 5% to upwards of 35%. High interest rates and late payment fees can put a strain on anyone’s finances, especially if they miss one or multiple loan installments.


You should closely inspect the terms and conditions of the loan before applying to prevent yourself from falling into a gap you didn’t see. For instance, some short-term lenders charge late payment installments and fees as well as an origination fee. Luckily there are several regulatory bodies that prevent any borrower from building up a debt spiral. There are some rules that prevent borrowers from taking out loan amounts that they cannot afford to pay.
