When applying for a personal loan, it is essential to do everything feasible to improve your probability of getting approved.
Receiving just one knockback for a loan will be recorded on your credit file and may make it just that little bit harder to get approved for finance in the future.
While there is no sure way of knowing you will be approved, there are specific requirements you should ensure you meet before putting forth your application.
You have a good credit history
Having a history of bad credit is a sure way to have your loan rejected. It is always important to check you have no defaults on your credit file before applying for a loan.
You are a good saver
Putting away part of your income into a savings account on a long-term basis can help to convince the lender that you are more likely to stick with an ongoing repayment plan.
You meet the minimum income threshold
Lenders will look at your income level along with your current debts and bills to make sure you can meet the loan repayment amount when assessing your application. It may be wise to draw up a budget and check this for yourself first.
You receive a regular income
Having a stable income will help to prove you are more likely to be a safe investment.
