A personal loan is a fixed amount of money given to an individual by a bank that comes with a fixed interest rate and a fixed repayment term. Personal loans are unsecured, which means that there is no collateral involved. So it is important to give information about your personal situation.
These include details on your working condition (kind of job, earning, weekly hours of work, medicare/health insurance), liabilities (rent of an apartment, child support, credit debts/obligation), personal data (family status, nationality, housing situation).
Just follow the simple steps in the loan application process and answer a few questions.
You will then receive a loan offer online – free and non-binding for you.
If you want to finalize, you can immediately prove your identity by use of the Targo Bank video chat, or by mail or at every branch.
