What is a personal Loan?
A Personal Loan or an unsecured loan is a form of loan taken from a lender or a financial institution for personal uses such as family vacations, medical needs, consumer electronics and appliances, debt consolidation, credit card bill consolidation, wedding or any other such needs.
In a personal loan, lenders lend money to borrower at a fixed or floating interest rate for a certain period of time which can range from 3 months to 5 years or even more depending on the amount without providing any collateral or asset as security or a guarantor. After that borrower repays the loan amount with easy monthly installments.
