General Questions

What is a short-term, small-dollar loan?

A short-term, small dollar loan is funding that you pay back all at once on a specified due date. The loan term is usually much shorter than with other financial products.

Will I be prequalified if I have bad credit?

While we cannot guarantee that anyone will be approved or prequalified for a loan, many of our lenders do work with loan customers who have poor credit histories.

How much will my loan cost?

Your lender determines the cost of your loan. The lender also sets the fees and interest associated with your loan. This information appears in your loan agreement. We recommend reading through your loan agreement carefully before you sign it.

What is an installment loan?

An installment loan is funding that is paid back, bit by bit, over time. The loan amount for an installment loan tends to be larger than for a short-term small dollar loan. On OpenLoansDirect.com, potential borrowers can request funding for up to $5,000.

How long does it take to get a short-term loan?

You could receive your funding as soon as the next business day.

How soon do I need to pay off my loan?

Your lender determines your loan term. Your loan agreement should show when your payment(s) are due.
