How Do Loans Work?

Before you negotiate and sign any loan agreements, you need to learn the basics about loans and credit and find out how you can borrow money at the lowest cost:

  • The loan usually refers to a sum of money borrowed from a financial institution or an individual with the obligation to pay it back, generally with interest and fees;
  • You pay the loan over time – several months or even years;
  • Potential lenders will require a lot of documents from you before your loan application is approved – they will examine your credit history, financial situation, employment history, and other factors before agreeing to a loan;
  • Interest rates are fixed or variable – they depend on your credit rating, amount of money borrowed, and the term of the loan. 

The loan process includes four general steps:

  1. Applying for a loan. Contact a bank or individual that provides loans and notify them about your intention to take out a loan.
  2. Qualifying for a loan. Once the lender receives your application and supplemental documents, they will determine your eligibility for a loan.
  3. Receiving the loan funds in case of approval. Within weeks a loan will be sent to the account you indicate for a lender.
  4. Paying the loan balance. Your agreement with a lender will list the full loan amount and the due dates of installment payments that include interest.
