Loans There are many different types of loans; car loans, personal loans, mortgages to name a few. Loans allow a consumer to borrow money from a financial institution with the understanding that the money will have to be paid back over time with interest. Unit 1 – Income & Debt Outcome 1-4: Solve problems involving personal loans.
The interest rate charged also depends on many factors:
the amount of money you borrow (generally, the greater the amount of money borrowed, the lower the interest rate)
the borrower’s past financial record, present financial situation, and the amount of security they can offer

Loans A financial institution usually requires that the product purchased by the loan be used as collateral or security. In the event that the loan is not repaid, the lending institution can seize the product and resell it to recoup the borrowed money. Shopping for a loan is no different from shopping for other products. A consumer should approach more than one lending institution. One institution may offer a better rate and/or better terms than the other. Unit 1 – Income & Debt Outcome 1-4: Solve problems involving personal loans.
