Direct Lender Short Term Loans

Short term loans are intended for unexpected expenses, such as an emergency vet bill or paying to get your car repaired. The two main types of short term loan are payday loans and installment loans. With the former, people tend to borrow a smaller amount of money, as the loan is repaid in full a few days or weeks later - typically on your next payday. For those looking to borrow more money, an installment loan allows you to spread the cost of repayment over several months or years. 

One of the main benefits of short term loans is that because you only pay interest for the time the loan is outstanding, you may not pay much interest overall. If you’re only borrowing the funds for a couple of weeks, for instance, the interest should not accrue too much.
