The reasons for needing a loan are as varied as the people who apply for them. While some people only need a small amount to get them through a short financially distressing time others need significantly larger amounts for larger (and harder to rectify) problems. Many people find themselves in need of up to (or even more than) ten thousand dollars! Maybe the money is needed to start a new business. Maybe you’ve decided to consolidate all of your smaller bills. Whatever your reason for needing a large sum of money, finding a lender to loan you the money is going to be considerably more difficult if your credit is bad.
Of course, the level of difficulty in obtaining a large loan when you have bad credit is extreme. It is extreme, but it is not impossible to find $10,000 personal loans for bad credit.
If your credit is less than perfect and you need a large loan, you have a few options that are available to you. Prepare yourself, however, for a battle because there are two significant problems that you will need to solve if you need this size of a loan. The first problem is that, if your credit is bad, your signature alone is probably not going to be good enough to get you the loan especially if your credit history shows any delinquency in loan repayment. The other problem is that traditional lending institutions are not always willing to loan out large amounts of money to people whose credit history is questionable and whose credit scores are low.
The good news is that, if your scores haven’t yet reached the bottom of the scale, there is still hope that a ten thousand dollar loan is still possible. This is because there are a few lending institutions out there who are set up to accommodate people whose credit is bad. This is usually possible because these independent lending institutions usually decide their own lending criteria and have their own algorithm for figuring out your credit score (which will be different from the algorithm used by the three major credit reporting bureaus). In these cases as long as you don’t have an extraordinary amount of outstanding loans, you should be approved for the larger loans without too many problems.
Be careful when you research your loan options. Each time you apply for a loan a “hit” is placed on your credit report. The more hits you have on your credit report, the more “questionable” you look to lenders. If you have a borderline score the decision about lending you money could go either way. Having too many hits on your report, however, could tip the scales against you. Having too many of these hits on your credit history could make you look desperate to lenders and most financial institutions don’t like loaning money to people who look desperate for funding.
While there are large personal loans for people with bad credit available, finding the one that is right for you might take some time. The best thing that you can do for yourself is to research each opportunity before actually applying for a loan. This will help you decide on which loan you should actually apply for.
