What Are Small Loans?


Like most people, you can sometimes find yourself a little short of cash. Maybe you need an extra £50 for petrol or are short for an unexpected bill, whatever the reason the last thing you want to do is borrow a large sum of money when a small amount is all you need. Small loans come in handy for everybody from time to time and there can be numerous reasons why you may need one but typically they will be under £500.
Lenders that provide a small loan service will normally offer the service to individuals only, although someone who is self-employed may make use of this service as well. An example is Mary still has two weeks before she is pad but needs to borrow a £100 for a new car tyre. The last thing she wants to do is become tied into a long loan agreement by borrowing a £1000 or more. By using a small loan Mary can purchase her tyre and repay the loan in a short space of time.
