Non-Banking Consumer Loans
Non-banking consumer loans can be received either in company branches or remotely via internet. A collateral is not necessary. Larger amounts have a fixed payment schedule, but smaller loans have to be paid back at once. In most cases people use these loans in unexpected life situations when extra funds are needed. Non-banking consumer loans are not meant for solving long-term financial problems or other liabilities.
