Quick guide to unsecured loans lenders

What is an unsecured loan?

Also known as signature or personal loan, a loan is unsecure because it is not collateralised. In turn, the interest rate is higher and the repayment conditions are stricter. Though this kind of loan is inflexible, it is a suitable short term loan (not exceeding 5 years) for small and unexpected expenses.
