A personal loan is a type of unsecured loan offered by financial institutions, such as banks or online lenders, to individuals for various personal expenses. Unlike secured loans that require collateral, personal loans are typically granted based on the borrower's creditworthiness and income. These loans provide borrowers with a lump sum of money that can be used for a wide range of purposes, such as consolidating debt, covering medical bills, funding home improvements, or handling unexpected expenses. Repayment terms and interest rates vary based on the borrower's credit history and the lender's policies. Personal loans offer a flexible financial solution for individuals seeking quick access to funds without the need for collateral.
