What is the difference between unsecured and secured loans?

At Nifty Loans, we offer three types of personal loans: small unsecured loans, medium optionally secured loans and large secured loans. Here’s a breakdown of what all that means.

Small Unsecured Loans

Small unsecured loans are small loans from $300 to $2,000 that you can borrow for 6 to 9 months. Unsecured simply means they don’t require you to attach any security to your application. Small weekend loans are perfect for a little financial pick-me-up, without too much commitment.

Medium and Large Secured Loans

Medium and large secured loans start from $2,001 and go up to $5,000 and the repayment period is between 9 to 24 months. Medium secured loans start at $2,001 and go up to $4,600 and we also offer large loans of $5,000. Secured simply means that you can list security to apply for this amount, such as a car, motorbike, caravan or boat. Medium or large secured loans could be worth considering for a big bachelorette or bachelor weekend, especially if you’re a key member of the bridal party and want to make it one for the books.

Let’s be friends

So, if you have a weekend packed with tons of fun, don’t let that pile of bills on the bench stop you. Apply with Nifty Loans for unexpected bill loans.
