Do you need some extra cash for a new car, a family vacation or home improvements? If you have assets to be used as security, we could offer you low interest rates with our secured personal loan.
A secured loan is where you (the borrower) use an existing asset be it a car, property or item of fiscal value to act as a security deposit on your personal finance. Offering an asset to act as security on your loan will enable you to borrow larger amounts of money and gives you access to a better, lower interest rate than if your loan was unsecure. However, in the event that a borrower is unable to repay their loan, the asset could be repossessed in order to cover the costs of the loan.
A Credit Union Baywide secured loan is typically secured by a vehicle. A secured loan allows us to offer you a secure personal loan of greater value than the security you provide. The amount we are prepared to lend you will vary on your affordability and credit score. Additional terms and conditions may apply.
