What is a Credit Building Loan in Nevada?
People with no credit are often discouraged by the idea of applying for a loan with a traditional bank or credit union. Bad credit personal loans often come in the form of payday loans, which do not offer ideal repayment terms and usually come with unreasonably high interest rates. When you work with a local credit union like Greater Nevada, you are offered tools to help you rebuild your credit or establish it in the first place. Why? Because we understand there is more than one way to determine a person’s creditworthiness beyond their credit history. Speak with a Greater Nevada loan consultant to explore the different types of loans and to see how we can get you on the road to financial success today.
Comparing Credit Loans
When seeking a loan with little or no credit, it’s very important to watch for hidden fees, unreasonably high annual percentage rates (APR), unrealistic terms, and other predatory practices that could affect your monthly payments and total amount you’ll pay over the life of the loan. Greater Nevada is transparent by offering competitive rates and terms, being upfront with any associated fees and penalties involved with borrowing, and offering support through several free financial wellness resources regardless of your credit history. As a not-for-profit cooperative, our goal is to help more people Live Greater in the communities we serve.
