Personal Loans

Funds for Life’s Important Moments

From home improvements to debt consolidation and even family vacations, personal loans from Greater Nevada Credit Union are there for when you need some monetary support.

Flexible Funding When You Need It

Having choices in life is a great thing, and personal loans are one of several different loan options available through Greater Nevada–and one of the most flexible.

Unlike most other loans, personal loans may be used on just about anything. From birthday parties to critical medical treatments, personal loans can help fund life’s most important needs.

Personal loans are closed-end unsecured loans (meaning no collateral is required) with fixed interest rates. That means you’ll repay the same amount every month throughout the loan term. Interest rates are based on your credit score and other personal financial details, and the amount you can borrow starts at $1,000.

Personal Loan Uses

There aren’t many loan options that can be used for anything. Personal loans are the exception.

From unexpected expenses to long-planned home improvements, here are some of the most common ways borrowers use their funds.

Multiple sources of debt can be stressful to manage, especially those with variable interest rates. Using a personal loan as a form of debt consolidation can help simplify your approach to repayment (and provide much-needed peace of mind).


You can’t expect the unexpected, but you can navigate it a little more easily with a personal loan. Use yours on sudden expenses like emergency medical treatments, car repairs, and home maintenance projects if your emergency funds run low.

A kitchen renovation, bathroom remodel, or new roof can greatly raise the value of your home. They might be investments worth making with your personal loan funds, especially if you’re considering selling soon.

Everyone needs a break once in a while. Fly solo or bring the whole family along–personal loan funds can be used for travel expenses like airfare, lodging, endless buffets, and of course, souvenirs of the trip.

From weddings and quinceañeras to bat mitzvahs and birthdays, there are endless special occasions that could use the funds from a personal loan.

The short answer: it depends!

The long answer: there are many factors that influence your monthly payment. How much you borrow and your interest rate (and by extension your credit score) are the primary ones. You can use our personal loan calculator tool to get a feel for what your repayment schedule might look like if you are approved for a loan.

What do banks look at on personal loan applications?

Because personal loans are unsecured loans (meaning they aren’t secured by assets like a mortgage is with a home or an auto loan is with a car), most lenders will want to see proof that applicants use good financial sense and have a history of smart money management. Good credit history, steady employment, and a strong debt-to-income ratio can all be signs that an applicant is a good candidate for a personal loan.

What do I need to get a personal loan?

Why would a bank reject a personal loan?
